We planned a trip to Elk County, PA this year. It was awesome to see the clusters of the doe with usually one bull elk. They seem to have no fear of us. They were casually grazing, then lying down, and occasionally there was a high-pitch call from a bull to be heard. The bull in the photo was standing about 60 feet from us!

This is a beautiful bull elk near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. There is a wonderful place called The National Elk Refuge, where the elk come out of the mountains to eat and bed down for the winter. We took a horse drawn sleigh ride through here and were able to see hundreds of elk up close. They are magnificent animals.
Here is one of our resident elk having the time of his life keeping cool. You can almost read his mind. "What more can I ask for; a hill full of cool, fresh clover, along with my own salt block? This has to be heaven!"
