Elk in the neighborhood - 1-31-16
Sunday, January 31, 2016
Ann Holmes has 7 elk that have “moved into our neighborhood” along Bear Creek and Hunters Drive. Here 6 cows and a lazy spike sun themselves on the dam on Bear Creek just above Meadow Lane.
Kevin Cerone found the same herd on Hunters Court.
To give you an idea why the elk are moving into the neighborhoods, that is the top of a fencepost at the bottom of Kevin's photo:
On the drive back to Steamboat yesterday we passed two large herds of elk - one with about 30 animals, and the other with more than 60. They'd found an area on the other side of the pass where they didn't have to dig through the snow to forage!
