As I mentioned before, there were two things which we really wanted to see on this trip (besides being with friends, Neal and Patti). These two things were: to see the Autumn Colors; and to see the Elk at Cataloochee Valley. We definitely accomplished both...
Today, I will show you some pictures of some of the elk we saw ---and then tomorrow, my photos will tell a story!!!!!! We enjoyed seeing the elk ---and hearing them BUGLE was just as exciting as seeing them... We had an awesome time.
Above is a picture of a group of them. Below are more!
This is a picture of a Mama and baby.... Cute, huh?
I was drawn to the males --because of their racks!!!!
The females are pretty too ---and in the groups which we saw this week, they seemed to outnumber the males.
Another beautiful male; Isn't he amazing?
Here are two males in another field.... No ladies around !!!! Guess they were taking a break!!!!! ha
Finally, this is one of my favorite pictures... The elk on the left is scratching his back --using his rack!!!! Neat, huh???
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of the elk from Cataloochee Valley (near Maggie Valley, North Carolina)... Tune in tomorrow for an Elk Story...
Have a wonderful day.
