There was a muddy creek just before the big rocks that the dogs were running through to retrieve a stick that Austin was throwing.
Wouldn't you know it, the time I forget my big camera we see two big bull elks. My blog camera is only a 3x zoom so I was not able to get a close up. Dammit Theresa! 1 bull is in the meadow and the other one is to the right of the lone pine tree.
