Spent 4 nights at Cut thoart campground at Big Lake, and hiked and biked many trails. Sept 27th - Oct 1st. the leaves are changing now, but still green in this area. Escudilla was turning faster, and lots of Golden yellow on that mountain right now. Elk bulged every night to the point you could not sleep, since many of them walked right through the campsite sounding like fog horns. Coyotes howled and laughed several times through each night. Lots of deer, but the Indian Springs Trail the Aspens where still green, but just as beautiful. the tower at blue lake is closed for the season, and so is the rainbow campground showers. but showers at Apache trout is $5. If you are looking to hike to see elk, there where across Crescent lake alot and many on the forest road south of Big lake that leads to East Fork Black River. I counted 31 elk in one hour, and then just stopped counting. Spring water at Spillman spring was very tasty and fresh. The meadows on the trail were a slice of post card paradise.
