Guess what we saw in our neck of the woods?

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.
