Sandy-in-Alaska-100x-100This Bull Elk was snorting and making lots of noise as he crossed the river. What you can't see in this image is the female Elk over my left shoulder!
I quickly retreated back to my car as he nimbly approached her and they performed their courtship ritual. He was on a mission and I sure didn't want to be in his way!
