Elk Trip: The Conclusion

The Elk featured in the previous series were the only elk we managed to locate on this trip.

Within perhaps fifteen minutes of first locating the elk they moved into the surrounding timber. We continued to drive about the area with no success and would occasionally check back on this spot.

After a couple of hours the sun broke through the clouds illuminating the goldenrod pictured here. After stopping at the Benezette Store restaurant we made an uneventful journey home.

This short trip was a teaser, soon I will be returning to Pennsylvania’s north woods to seriously photograph the Elk Rut.

A great alternative shot to all of the elk.

Well, perhaps not what you set out to get, but the goldenrod shot is beautiful!
