Elk In The Mist

I really like this shot -- not becuase it's great photographically but more for the story it tells (at least to me) as I witnessed him on his daily journey. Everyday, herds of Elk moved from the willow flats, across the Snake River and up into the forest of Signal Mountain and its really a story of survival -- and what did I do...went back to my car and ate a bagel with cream cheese and drank some coffee. My story of survival is much more complicated but not nearly as difficult as his.


Puts life into perspective when you spent time with nature.
