Started at 5am, it was 55 degrees and dark. Elk were bugling and coyotes howling in the distance. See Canyon has been hammered by the last couple of storm systems. FR284 has some erosion and debris. The board that I typically use to cross the creek and join Highline has been washed away. Some new deadfall on Highline as well. Used a headlamp for the first 35mins. Within the first half mile I walked right through the middle of an elk herd. They all froze and watched me pass by, I could see all the pairs of eyes glowing in my headlamp. There is a ton of water right now. Christopher Creek is raging. Every little tank, marsh, wash and tributary has water flowing too. There were a few more muddy spots on the trail than usual. See Canyon was moist as expected. I walked through dozens of spider webs for some reason and even saw a gray fox scamper across the trail in the lower portion. Didn't see anyone else hiking until I got back to the TH. Made it home in time for breakfast. Good little morning exercise hike, as usual.
