A Nice Surprise!

Sometimes my job gives me nice surprises. Today was one of them. I drove over to the Ken-Caryl Valley area and look what was in a front yard chowing down on the tree leaves.

 The fellows with KC Ranch that I was working with told me that he was one of three grandfather elk in the area. He was HUGE and BEAUTIFUL! Good thing it was not fall or I think he may have charged us (by now there were about 4 cars stopped). All remained smart and stayed in their vehicles. I did see a female in the next yard over, but did not get a picture since she got up and was leaving as I was driving by.

 This area was our last stop for the day and what a great way to end a project on a hot day!

About this time enough cars had stopped he was getting a bit irritated I think (note the flared nostrils), so I left rather than have to explain Elk hoof prints on the company car! In turning around I had to go past the area again and saw the elk heading for the ravine. He did indeed have enough of us.
