Back to Camp
Guide (and camp funny man) Ted and his hunter had killed an elk the previous day, so our packing party headed up Goat Mtn. the next morning to bring it back. Each rubbermaid tub holds an elk quarter, and the head is tied on top one of them. Bright orange flagging is tied from it's antlers to prevent any confusion that the mule carrying it is actually an elk to any random hunter that may be nearby (not common at all, just a precaution). Mark is crossing back over the S. Fork to make his way back to camp with the loaded elk.
