Elk Near the Klamath River

We were needing to stretch our legs so we got off the 101 and decided to join several other people that were viewing Elk. We were very close to Klamath , California and it was a  beautiful  morning.

While there we met Lindsey and Lester. A young and carefree looking couple that were hoping to catch a wave somewhere along the coast.They decided the best way to see the Elk was to hop on their car.

This is what we were all straining to see… I got one more shot of Lindsey before we departed.

At another destination in Oregon I got a better  closer  shot of an Elk..He was laying low and somewhat camouflaged.

And at this location it was good to see that these majestic animals are protected.
