We started on the gentle crest of Polecat Bench and headed north-northwest. The snow-capped, Beartooth Mountains are visible on the western horizon.
Elk Basin is rather rugged below the bench.
I like sandstone outcrops. Sometimes bunnies pop out and startle Mommy.
This rock did not look happy!
We walked through several steep drainages. We were both tired by the end of the day.
Here's a little map. The terrain in the west half (left) is much rougher than the gradual crest of Polecat Bench. Both of us got a nice workout!
