Photos of a herd of elk that were in our back yard a while back. Now the snow covers their browse so they have left our area in search of food. Sometimes we will have herds of up to 50+ out back. When the snow melts in a few months they will be back again. Presently the elk have moved to greener pastures, the bear are hibernating, and the deer have moved down the mountain. The mountain lions have followed the deer so all we have left are a few rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional hawk or owl. We do have bob cats and coyotes that seem to hang around all year also with the rare siting of a wolf. Not much wildlife remains presently as we get ready for the next storm due tomorrow.
