Rabbit Ridge Road Elk Serenade

A group of us hiked this morning up the Rabbit Ridge Road, across from the Valle Grande. The sound of the bugling elk was beautiful! The day was overcast and temps were cooler, giving a feeling of autumn. Ordinarily, a day without our intense New Mexico sunshine can make me feel "down" but not today. My spirits were buoyed after this beautiful hike.

Some hikers went all the way to Rabbit Mountain and then took a short-cut down the mountain-side and back to the cars at Coyote Call trailhead. I went as far as the first felsenmeer and then walked alone back to my car. I wasn't really alone, though, because the  bugling elk serenaded me from all around.
