I also saw a hoofprint which was quite large. The prints followed the edge of the lake for a ways and I assume they belonged to a bighorn sheep, since they seemed to large to be antelope or regular deer.
I took a variety of pictures and hiked around for about an hour, then got in the car and headed back to civilization. The moose was standing on the road an area shortly past the return of pavement. He(She?) was standing right in the middle of the road and when I approached he stepped off, and then since I stopped he wandered back onto and then across the road. He paused right on the edge of the pavement and stood looking at me. Had I not slowly started moving the car toward him I think he'd have stood their all day.
So, here I am now in Jackson, which feels a lot like Steamboat Springs...busy and commercial. I want to check out a thing called the Teton Treehouse that is somewhere here in Jackson, and then I plan to head north. Yesterday I bought a physical US Atlas and I am going to highlight and notate my route so far. Although I've wound around in Montana, Wyoming and Colorado (even Utah briefly) I don't have a good handle on the overall picture of how the mountains move through these states, and so today, before I go further, I'm going to sit in this comfortable Starbucks and do some learnin'.
By the way, I'm not doing it because its out of the price range of this journey, but if you get a chance, go to the Teton Treehouse B&B!
