Day 6 of being in the mountains...

Updated: Nov 13

Still out with my father and cousin in Elk Camp in the Eagle Cap wilderness of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.


I've changed underwear a few times but still haven't seen a regular toilet facility. The snow has come down twice now and the winds have been howling since last night. Haven't seen a female human this whole time. I'm halfway through the only book brought with me (a travel memoir) and haven't eaten a green vegetable this whole time.


My phone is down to the 20%s and the ground making up our tent floor is dry and dusty. The cots aren't very comfortable (or trustworthy) but am able to get a few good hours of shuteye each night to supplement with morning and evening coffee.


Technically, it's my Dad who has the license/ tag to hunt for Elk, but I do carry the rifle, usually. The bad weather that's come in has made for bad hunting though. We're gonna break camp and head home on Thursday (and I'm gonna take a glorious fucking bath). Wish I had more to read and a balance of feminine energy in this space. But I can't complain for the opportunity to be out in the wilds in such a unique circumstance!


Love, Colty Bear 🧸
