An Elk Reunion

This past week has been very snowy, and its pushed a lot of wildlife out of the higher areas down into the valley where food is a bit easier to come by. Right down the road, a huge herd of bull elk are just laying around, chewing their cud, and I'm sure they are amused at all the humans along the road gawking at them.

They really are quite amazing to see. They were pretty far off the road, and my camera's zoom can only do so much, but here's my wildlife encounter for the day.

Do you see what I see?

Hanging out on the hill.

Those are some big bulls.

A tangle of antlers.
