Thought this would be an easy hit... but the Antlers were further up canyon than I recalled. Once there, they were huge! I could not see working them down the climbs and through the undergrowth we'd just hiked up through... so... climbed out of the canyon; tracked a variety of upper Elk trails (appropriate?) around and out. Eventually, mounted the rack on my pack... got a bit of an idea how the Elk might feel with that awkward load!?

After having logged two prior days of harder efforts, this day hit hard! Time for a rest day?
