One bright early morning I spent quite a bit of time sitting and watching the sun rise and feeling the warmth slowly catch up with the nights chill. Frost was suddenly melted as the sun hit it. Watching Pine Squirrels scolding each other and harvesting cones in anticipation for next winters onslaught. Various species of birds were declaring their territories making for a most glorious early morning chorus. All the while watching the changing shadows of morning changing the face of the Wiggins Fork canyon. One bull elk now with full velvet covered antlers had come out of the willows and just as fast discovered me and was off into the timber. This is a mountain summer.
