{WW} Elk @ Estes Park -Linky

 

On our way back home we had to stop and see the elk!! Around this time of year they migrate and pass through Estes Park…

We got soooo close to them!!

Mr. Elk was snoozing away…as soon as his head touched the ground he lifted up, shook it a bit, and gave the loudest yawn I’ve ever heard!!

It was amazing!!

    All I keep thinking is what would happen if you gave an Elk a muffin? πŸ˜‰

    That is so cool. Is it stills or a video? I am not sure if I have seen elk before. Happy WW!

      They are stills, animated the image with Photoshop! πŸ˜€ It’s actually pretty easy.
