A short drive brought a nice reward… Glad to see the elk are still out and about! After they crossed, I turned the corner and they stayed by the road for a close-up.

  2. Great pictures, Sheri. I haven’t seen any elk here yet this year. Usually, they just knock over our fences and disappear. 🙂

    • They usually come to our yard when it snows, or during winter storms, but the neighborhood I was driving by (about 2 miles from mine) has them almost all year. They can be a nuisance, but they are also magnificent, especially up close. Such enormous animals, and yet often skittish – like they don’t know their own strength.

    How kind of them to pose for you, Sheri! Have they damaged anything in your yard yet this year?
