Just as Man and I came out of the Grand Canyon National Park, standing almost in the driveway to our campground were several elk (which some uneducated observer told us was a mule deer). They were just grazing away on the grasses along the road. They sure created a fuss with the vacationers, traffic stopped, people jumping out of cars and trucks taking photos. Man secured a parking spot for Big Butt, grabbed Sony and hightailed it over to take some photos. Well done to the Man! (Who, by the way, is a much better technical photographer than I, he is always teaching me new tricks of the trade.)
|Above: No, it does not have 6 legs! LOL There is|
another elk directly behind this one. This big fella is chewing
on a piece of green fresh grass.
|Above, looking both ways before we cross the highway??|
Probably not, they go where they want, and the traffic stops for them!
* Our visit to the Grand Canyon was on April 21, 2011. It took me till this week to realize what animal this was. SIGHH and DUHHH. OKK, I got it now! LOL
