Elk on parade
Our Sunday afternoon drive took us towards Rathdrum on Burlington Road where a herd of nearly 40 elk winters each year. They're an elusive band as they travel across the prairie to favored feeding grounds but luck was with us. We spotted the herd among the tree stand alongside the road where I took several photos of elk in the trees. In a minute or two the herd began crossing Burlington Road near the Greensferry junction, right in front of our car.
In this past week I've taken the photos posted here of elk, moose, deer, wild turkeys, robins and red-tail hawks. The majority were taken from my car or close by my car on paved roads in the city. North Idaho's scenic beauty is without compare but I love living where I can enjoy so much incredible wildlife in my own "backyard."
