FEMALE ELK – As soon as we drove into Yellowstone we saw cars lined up on one side of the road with the drivers and occupants working their way down a shallow embankment. Bill pulled over and parked. I asked him what was happening and he told me that when cars are pulled over and parked like this it means someone has spotted something so we had to go see. What an awesome surprise to stumble right on top of about 20 female elk in the narrow river and on both sides. Bill got within a couple yards of one lying on the grass.
