This really isn't a hike...more a visit to an interesting attraction. A friend (Don) usually heads out this way very early in the year on a photography trip. Don asked if I was interested. Sure I was. It's a long drive out there though...a ways past Naches.

I'd never been here before so I wasn't sure what to expect. In the winter, this is an area that the elk gather and are fed. We pulled up into the parking area and then were scheduled on a tractor ride. The tractor slowly drove through the area the elk were resting and being fed. To me it felt a bit like going to the zoo. It's easy, given the near captive audience, to get good photos of the elk.
