Comments: Hi Benjamin, really the only impressive part of this photo op was the 22 mile backpack to get in to the lake...

I think that was the same summer a guy had been gored to death by a goat in the Olympic Nat Park so it was all a bit sobering too.

The best part though was the next da... more >>

Comments: Beautifully camouflaged eh?

No harm done, dogs controlled in time and a bit of re-routing got us away with minimal excitement, but it's size made me think it had probably not strayed far from its den this summer, and so that general area has more.
