We got up before sunrise this morning, and made our way out to Boxley Valley
where the elk usually browse. They told us that early morning would be the
best time to see them...and they were right! The elk were there and they were
stirring around. It was cold, about 34 degrees, and the crisp mountain air
was filled with the bugling and whistling of the bulls. We were not alone;
there were about a dozen other photographers there, whispering and
moving their tripods around. The elk didn't seem to notice. A few of
the bulls chased each other a little...but we didn't get to see any challenges.
All in all, it was a great morning, and I have many more wonderful
photos of these beautiful animals.
I will print some of these, and they will be available in the gallery.
