There's a gulch near Lab Valley where a surprising number of animals like to spend time. I thought that the cold and snow would make it an unpopular spot in winter. So far, I was wrong about that. However, it has hardly been a snowy winter to date.
I first became interested in it when I noticed bear marking trees. Of course, the bears are asleep now so no bears have ambled through there in months. Instead, cats are prevalent - both mountain lions and bobcats. And, big bull elk with painfully heavy antlers love the gulch. Deer love it too.
As I've discovered the variety of animals there, I've put up a few cams, mainly because different species like slightly different parts of the gulch. The footage today is from three cams all within about 30 yards of each other.
Check out this video if you have time. I always love spots that attract all sorts of wildlife, and this is one of them.
