We parked at the end of County Road 1121, at the entrance to Montlure camp, and walked back to Butler Canyon. Ascended the canyon to the prairie east of the East Fork and wandered rather aimlessly. Stopped at Hog Wallow Lake for a photo where we attracted the attentions of a couple horses and a gajillion flying ants. Gathering clouds and rumbling thunder convinced us to turn back toward Greer, and we skirted a large encampment with lots of baying hounds. Must have been some sort of field trials. Finally beyond the cacaphony, we encountered a big group of grazing elk, then descended a steep draw back to Montlure. Beautiful day to be outdoors but no other hikers in evidence.
