Sunny morning with snow on the ground. Lots of interesting tracks, from mice to grouse, to deer, and elk. When I saw the bear track I decided to turn around.

Wander through the snow. Deer tracks and a few elk were found, and tracks from a cat, which were far enough apart it seemed it could be a cougar. In the lower elevations we saw turkeys in the fields.

Lots of cows in the forest. Everywhere I looked for wildlife, there were cows. There were also partially buried pipes running for miles through the forest, to put water in the water holes for the cows. That seems a little too far beyond just 'sharing' the land.

This race takes you right past the impressive Mesa Falls, where the great Snake River pours over a deep drop. Some of the course is on a converted railroad bed. Very scenic, and very well organized.
I ran the half marathon, also on the rail-trail through a canyon without any roads, and then up to the fields and through the country roads to Ashton, Idaho. Great support and perfect planning. The 'back' of the Grand Tetons were visible in the distance during part of the race.

Took a short hike part-way up the slope of Bloomington Peak, and the trip turned into a deer-watching event. Lots of deer with big antlers on the upper slopes; looked like white-tail deer. On the other ridges nearby were mule deer. I changed course to look at them too. They seemed to be so preoccupied with scratching the velvet off of their antlers on an old stump, that I hiked to within 50 yards of four bucks.
The only drawback to this area in the summer was the large number of range animals around. Cows in all corners of the forest. Otherwise good campsites were full of cow 'sign,' and smelled like a pasture.

Lots of flowers and variety of plantlife, especially if you go off trail a little. This is a very busy area, due to how easy it is to drive to an alpine lake. Many people hike in to swing off the enormous rope swing into the very cold water. Some carry in their canoes and kayaks.
We saw a match of 'kayak ultimate' on the lake, in which it appeared that Ultimate Frisbee was combined with kayaks and a football. A football was tossed between players, but once caught the player could no longer paddle. This place is in the process of adding a self-pay station for day use.

Quick hike but got a couple hail showers and some solid rain before it was over.

Hunters were in the area with horses, so wildlife was hidden away. However, on the drive out we saw 4 moose together up on the hillside (2 bulls and 2 cows), which was a first for me.

Nice day for hiking through the fall leaves. Saw a distant herd of deer, and a big buck. Even saw a big turkey fly through the evening light.

This hike is in the Bald Mountain area, in the Squaw Creek drainage. There are a lot of trails here but a lot of them are cow path combined with game trails, so when you get to the upper sections of the trail, it is a little hard to stay on the right 'trail' without a GPS unit.
Lots of red and yellow leaves, and nice views into Wyoming. This may have been the last 'warm' weekend for this area, with storms expected next week.

Ran the lower side of this, and then ran down Barton Road, to connect to the Portneuf Trail System at Ross Park.
It was a lot hotter down on the AMI/Kirkham side of the route, because of the direct sun and sagebrush.

A warm day in the valley, but cool above 10,000 feet. Lots of hikers, since it was a Saturday. The mountain goats were much lower, and had several close encounters with humans. We were eating our lunch at the stone cabin near Emerald Lake, and along came a goat right behind us. The season was so dry, that the lake was divided in two, with a rock 'causeway' through the middle of it. The glacier had only one spot of snow in the upper section, and one ravine of snow near the lake, which was sad to see.

Parking was full at the lodge, and I could only park on the roadside over a half mile away. However, that allowed me to come face to face with a herd of bighorn sheep, that decided to walk right down the road (which had cliffs on either side). I ended up walking back to the car, before they jumped off the road. A ranger was following them on foot to make sure they stayed safe and that people didn't do any dumb stuff, either with their life or their car!

Near the lodge there were 2 herds of bighorn sheep. Some were practicing their head-butting over and over. Along this hike more than half of it is a board walk. Lots of melting water along the ground. We crossed paths, literally, with a mother mountain goat and her calf, as they came directly down the mountain and crossed the trail to go get water. I had to call out a few people to stop walking closer, so she could cross the trail. It seemed really rude of me, but it was worth it. At the overlook, someone spotted a grizzly bear about a mile and a half away, so we all stared until it went behind some trees.
Overall the views were great but the camera shots were not. Too much haze and forest-fire smoke all throughout the park.

August in this area is best described as "dry and hot." The benefit of this was that we saw no mosquitos. And that's saying something. The wet grassy/marshy areas were all dry, which also made for some easy hiking. The down side is mainly that the lakes have gotten a good deal of fishing pressure by now, so the fish that are left have gotten smart. The more popular lakes were slow for fishing unless you get a lure out there at first light or just before dark.
