You know how you see those signs that say "Elk next 9 miles" or whatever, but you never see any? Well, yesterday outside of Lone Pine, near Mt. Whitney, I spotted a huge herd of elk at noon, on our way through. YES! High noon! A farmer was watering his alfalfa field and there were several smaller herds and one very large one in the fields. The bull elk in one herd next to the road was HUGE! Of course, some young whippersnapper was testing him, so he was very busy keeping all his females in one spot! But, compared to the challenger, he was massive! Several other cars had pulled over and we all climbed through the weeds to the fence to take photos. That's My World for Tuesday, August 18, 2009.
