5/14/05: The Hope Pass Trail is laden with snow up high through at least May. Aspens are plentiful, and so is wildlife. Besides numerous mountain goats and some deer, I also came across this bird, fanning its feathers. I thought it looked too dark to be a ptarmigan, and I was unable to get a closer shot. Can anyone help me out? A quail perhaps?
