Ladies Man

After a full day of hiking and hearing elks bugling all over the valley, I had to find their source(s). Driving back from the trails, there were a large group of people on the side of the small road. I pulled over and observed a small herd of elk. Then, after about thirty minutes, they decided they wanted a closer look at us, the people.
