Ha, awesome! I love it!! I can’t believe you only saw three bears. I would have expected many more.
Where did you see 10 Jackalopes?!? Was it one of those long hot days without water?
How did you guess? They were milling about near 287 north of Rawlins. Granted, they were pretty far away, but they definitely weren’t antelope, horses, cows, or any of the usual suspects. Except Jackalopes.
My tally from the last day:
1 bald eagle
1 missing link
2 muskrats 2 snails 2 badgers
11 coyotes (10 may have been jackalopes)
22 (but actually 200) wild horses
411 pronghorn antelope
547 ticks (4 penetrated)
And lots of Man Made: http://www.flickr.com/photos/29230074@N06/sets/72157622020795030/
i remember one trip out to JTree we’d hung a plastic trash bag in a bush. you got up in the night and did something with it.
in the morning you were all “The coyotes were using it like a [i]pinata[/i]”
Until then, I’d only seen raccoons play piÃ±ata.
You guys are awesome. Seriously awesome.
