E is for ...


Elk! Funny, but I never  knew that the Rocky Mountain Elk is Utah's state animal, and I live here. Shame on me.  *gasp*
One day, my husband and I w e r e   driving through the high Uinta Mountains and w e  spott e d an  e lk. I want e d to tak e  a pictur e  of it.

Gu e ss what h e  did? H e   hik e d about a mil e  or 2 out and took its pictur e.  H e  cam e  back as quickly as h e  could, panting and told m e  it was only a baby and how lucky h e  was that th e  mama wasn't around! 

So, if you want to see a Utah  e lk, driv e  through the high mountains in the lat e  spring, you just might com e  across one !

  2. I've seen Elk in the wild in Norway and also see what a mess they can make if someone hits one in a car! Beautiful animals and not just in Utah.

  10. Elks are nice looking animals...from afar. I've never seen one in real life. Only in various mediums such as television and photos like the one you have here. I think I'll stick with that. No late-night Elk viewings for me...I'll leave that up to all of the mountain lovers, lol.

    Cheers!

  11. Around here we have deer and they often cause wrecks and damage too vehicles when they jump across the road. Do the Elk do that?

  12. Thank you for your comment :) I loved this post, I've always been confused about the difference between moose and elk though. I would love to see one in the wild! I'm loving all the e's everywhere :)

  18. I remember seeing elk very close up, lounging around in someone's yard in Jasper. Beautiful animals. Around here, we just get lots of deer, but they are still special to see too.
