The wild Elk herds of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem have been on my bucket list for a long time. This past fall we had the pleasure of observing these majestic animals just as the herds were transitioning from their summer grazing range down to the lower elevations in preparation for the fall rut and the long cold winter ahead. We were treated to the eerie bugling calls echoing over the valleys during the long, cold, snowy nights but the beasts eluded us by day.  Hope was almost lost of seeing the large herd I had imagined in my mind until, on our last day in the area, we crested a ridge and spotted a large buck with his harem. I am very happy to say that it was well worth the wait and a perfect end to the journey. I would now like to introduce you to the sight I had hoped to see,  Before the Snow Flies – Elk.
