The monsoons have arrived! The biggest rains since June have been pounding our camp and the adjacent mountain ranges for the past two days. Just outside of camp we have a wash to cross each day in order to get to the drainages on the ranch where 90% of our hunting takes place. Yesterday we couldn't cross! We're sharing the camp with three guys from Mississippi on their first elk hunt. Excitement got the better of them yesterday afternoon as we were attempting to cross the wash. As we made the decision to turn around, they decided to go for it. Eventually, they made it back to shore, but not after the water was running over the hood of their truck. Last night at dinner one of the hunters, Richard, was laughing as he said, "I wouldn't be surprised if fish are still swimming around inside Neal's doors!"
