We were in the right place at the right time today. We had heard rumours of them. And today when my folks and i went out to lunch, we saw them.
This is the roaming herd of Roosevelt Elk in our town. They are beautiful, but very destructive at times. They were in a pasture, near Newalkum Creek, just a few miles away from our new house. Hopefully we won't see them up close in our yard, but it's nice to know they are here.
