Rocky Road is my favorite flavor.

Terrance (Toyota Echo) has successfully (though not without protest) driven up and around the rocky mountains.

We encountered:

(1) herd of bighorn sheep.

(4+) herds of elk

(2) moose

(1) hare

(2) owls

(20+) various small mammals including chipmunks, chickarees, and pikas

(40+) tourists

A guide booklet the park gives out mentions precautions to take if attacked by a mountain lion or bear: “Do not turn around. back away slowly. Make yourself as large as possible and make loud noises. Pick up small children. If attacked, FIGHT BACK!”

Now you know.
