Colter and I headed up into Earthquake Basin for one more attempt at an elk before the end of the season. We took off after church on Sunday and headed up into the basin from the McAllister Picnic Area. The trail showed signs of some recent heavy horse traffic. We made good time up into the basin and found a sheltered spot with access to water to set up the tent.
Monday morning we were up before sunrise and glassed another ridge until the sun came up. We then explored around the basin for a few hours before heading back home. We had a good time and did not see another soul.
