Elk along the Alaska Highway

19 April 2015 - Sunday

Steve came home from an errand to tell me that the elk were back by the Alaska Highway. So I grabbed the camera and headed out...

Wapiti is another name for the elk, it means "white bum"

It was about 8:30 p.m. with the sun setting, so the colours are warm!

Collared Elk
Pierced ears and a necklace (tags and collar) - #8-090

The elk shed the fur on their neck in spring. We've been finding elk hairs up to 5" long on our hiking trails. Their feet sure make a mess of the snowy trails too!

The collars transmit a signal.

I enjoy seeing the elk in the area. Good stuff!
