You are welcome Hexa.....and no that didnt confuse me...Bull Elk will bugle at each other clear across valley's and come toward each other to fight...Hunter's imitate the sound during the rut to attract big Bull's....I have myself.....and cow's talk to bulls as well and their calve's...kinda like a meeeew....you would have to hear it lol...

No I didnt know you could hunt in Roosevelt Park...but some do allow it if the Elk herd is getting to large....harvesting prevent's starvation and keep's the herd healthy and strong.....

The Mountain men called the Rocky Mountain's......The Shining Mountain's..

wow thats a lot of mountains lol


ive never been to washinton state, as far as i know, but i lived in california, was born in Nevada, and spent alot of time in colorado and wyoming but that was so long ago.
I recognize the tetons, laramie, medicine bow, syerra nevadas, rockies from your list, and am sure ive been to those, the rest id have to ask my father. If most are in washington then im almost sure i havent. If they are in the states i listed above, there is a good chance i have seen them atleast once. Rabbit Ears Pass seems to be so vivid in my memory is that what its called??, I can remember it was the wake up point LOL Mom would make us get up when we were traveling when we got to rabbit ears. It was about the time Dad had to pull over and let the hot engine cool heheh. But i dont know where it is, id have to look it up.

Had a blizzard, where i am in Loveland we got atleast 3-4 ft in most areas.
My house is on a hill (incline?), so our van slid down the driveway over nite and has been stuck the last 3 days in the street at the end of my driveway.
My husbands car a 4 wheel drive blazer is stuck on the road on hwy 287 and has been since Tuesday.

lol I wished for this white xmas, but i dont recall asking for it in blizzard- style.

I ran out of basic-food lastnite (milk, bread that sort of thing) and so we spent the morning having the car towed to a cleared road.

this is our 3rd heavy snow so far this year, im told the worst comes in february and March around here.. Boy!!

Merry Xmas all, and happy new year! If anyone should happen to run into the big guy who delivers presents Please ask him for a 10 mega pixel camera with xtra zoom for me :) Ive been a really good girl, too! Oh and Mr Hexa would really like a snow-blower :)
