We were driving home on the dirt road that leads up our mountain on Saturday when we passed a car stopped on the side of the road. The people inside were looking out into the field with binoculars. We immediately slowed down, and since Austin has built-in scopes in his eyes, he was the first to spot them.
Can you see anything yet? Austin and Mimi went back to the road with a pair of binoculars, and when I left for work an hour later, I brought my camera and took these pictures. Here's the clearest one I got on the zoomiest I could do.
Elk! A huge herd of elk. Probably a hundred or so, a couple hundred feet off the road.
This is a wonderful place.
