Spent some time with several bull elk,

We had about 24 hours of free time this weekend so Patrick and I ran away to Nebraska to listen to the bugling elk after they wallowed in the mud pits and shined up their antlers in the brush.

I have more photos to show you of these creatures  but I thought I’d give you a tease before sharing the others.  We’ll call this Elk Week.

Hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend!

    So so cool! Glad you two got away for a short bit and more than a little jealous of “your” elk.

      Thank you! Aren’t they incredible to stumble upon! I love the bugling. And when they put their heads back and run, it’s just incredible.
