We expected to see lots of deer and elk, and while we saw game trails o'plenty and flattened grasses from laying down areas, no animals. The path is very obvious and well used (we even found horseshoe tracks). Someone even built benches and bridges along the way.

|No firearms. No bikes. No hunting.|
|Loosely translated: "Please stay out. Please."|

|Been here a while, I think|
|Old Man's Beard, or technically, Usnea|
|Climb the tree. Wait and shoot. Stalking them is so boring.|
As I mentioned, we didn't see much in the way of wildlife (probably because someone shot them all), other than none too friendly Gray Jays.
|Very pretty, but keep the distance.|
