We did the (Cadeís Cove) loop in the park a few days ago, it was bumper to bumper from the beginning to end. Not even a squirrel to be seen. Just lots of humans.
When we drove out of the KOA yesterday morning to head back into the park, a herd of Elk crossed the pavement in front of us the with the bull close at hand. (The picture will be off because Iím using the phone to do this, sorry.)
