Spring Elk

Been spending some time in the elk woods lately...checking out the herds for the upcoming season.  Makes a great outing to combine a run and scouting session.  Chasing elk really racks up the vertical.

Cows scurry along a ridge.  Strange fish-eye effect in the photo.
We seeeeeeee you.  Oh, wait...they see us too.  Hard to put one over on a group of vigilant cows.  A few seconds later this group would disappear into the abyss.
