Check out those giant deer... Wait—they're elk? What makes the lake so blue? Doesn't even look like real water. There's a bald eagle in that tree. Just saw a marmot, too. I think I see that mountain we climbed yesterday. We're going rafting tomorrow, right? That waterfall is the tallest thing I've ever seen! This is the best vacation ever.
