Yesterday we forced ourselves to go to the McBride airfield to walk the dog in really miserable weather. A wet snow was blown by strong winds. I didn’t expect much from the walk except for misery, but once we got out on the runway, Joan noticed a big herd of elk (Wapiti) which looked like ghosts animals on the horizon.
I tried several times to get a decent photo of the elk. It was difficult since the snow was blowing directly at the camera when I aimed it at the elk. I was happy when I you could at least sort of see the elk when I got to look at the photos I took.
I was right about our walk, it was very miserable, but at least there was an unexpected reward in seeing the huge herd of elk. I haven’t seen any elk all winter long, and suddenly here is a giant herd of them.
