In the evening as the temps cool is usualy the toughest time to hunt because you have thermals working against each other so to speak. In rocky terain the scent rises for a long time but the heavier cool air wants to take your scent down hill creating the swirling affect so to speak.
I know someone can word it better than I.

up in the afternoon
all 4 norths in the later afternoon early evenings :)
its that early evening hunting that drives people nuts...keep your nose in the wind means your spinning in circles.
My experinces have been the elk are coming UP mtn in the early mornings. they are moving from grazing and watering holes up high to their afternoon beds.
Late afternoon early evening they are coming down hill heading back to feed.
then again....they are elk...they do what ever they want when ever they want.
