Leaving the trailhead from a hike just now, I saw a herd of probably 150 elk moving from the Colorado plains back to the mountains. Second in a series! See also prairie dogs: MEANWHILE ... PRAIRIE DOGS!
  1. The elk, or wapiti,
  2. is one of the largest species
  3. within the deer family in the world, and
  4. one of the largest land mammals
  5. in North America.
    Yes, the first ones in line are jumping a five-foot wire fence. They all went over on a run. So. Cool.
  6. Bye ...
  7. Elk!
