I found these elk before breakfast on the third day. Elk and most wild animals are mostly seen during sunrise and sunset. The animals sleep during the night and hide from the heat during the day under trees and bushes. The elk is very sensitive to sounds and movements from objects that are non-elk. I stepped outside the door, and immediately all of the elk stared at me. I tried to creep closer to them, but the noise scared them away, leaving me with only a few, far-away pictures.
