Just about of the old surface mines around here have elk on them and a few have horses that were turned loose by phople that could'nt afford to feed them. Many of the horses have been on those sites for many years and are now feral.....a great number of the horses were born there.......progress sure can suck sometimes.

I have been to this place several times. It is a beautiful place. We have ridden our ATV's there as well our 4 wheel drive. But it is awesome to see all those horses and we always see those. We've only seen elk a couple times but loved it. The place right now is so peaceful and enjoyable. But what they call progress is gonna ruin this place. So sad.
