We like to vary the location of our afternoon walks, so yesterday, since we had recently walked Jeck Road and Horseshoe Lake, we decided to walk down the tarmac at the airfield. We got there, parked the car, and I was just about to open the door for Kona, when my wife said, “Wait, there are elk out there.”
That pretty much scuttled our walk at the airfield. Kona goes nuts if she sees (or smells) unexpected people or animals. She strains at her leash and can’t be calmed. Knowing how she would probably react to a herd of about 40 elk (not well) we decided to drive over to Horseshoe Lake and do our walk there.
It was an unexpected large herd of elk (Wapiti) at the airfield. They were all spread out, so I couldn’t get a photo of the entire herd.
