Make sure to go, for the majority of the trails are in the wide open...
Oh, we (I) hate having to pass a baby and momma cow...
Steep (the photo just does not do it justice) and loose.
Bones, bones, everywhere!
Huge spine! Must be cow. :(
Ohhh, the cowhide. Must have been poached (livestock is considered theft, not poaching). I'm heartsick. So much for a protected area..
The bones were scattered all over the side of the hill and across the trail.
Again, the photo just does not show the depth. Almost a nipple scrapper.
Move along little
These cows were in the pasture, if you can call it that - then they started running! Have not witnessed running cows. A bit unnerving.
