Elk along the Alaska Highway

10 October 2013 - Thursday

More elk! These were munching the vegetation along the Alaska Highway. The males were also bugling and making a nuisance of themselves. I also photographed this herd in the distance in mid-August. Visit my 2015 elk page to hear an elk bugling.

The bulls are usually more shy than the girls

Kept his eye on me too

Why did the elk cross the road?

Why is he watching me? Maybe he recognizes me from previous photo shoots

Not everyone gets to see these sights on their daily commute. Lucky me!
