Well, this isn’t something you see often. I had yesterday off so spent the morning at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. On my first go-around, I spotted what I thought initially was a really big mule deer. It only took a few seconds though to realize, that’s an elk!
This pretty lady was initially seen here last winter but I had not seen any reports of her in many months. Apparently, rather than heading back to the high country when summer arrived, she decided the lower elevations suit her fine and has been hanging around out of sight. She looked quite healthy and apparently doesn’t mind hanging out with her deer cousins.
