Sun and elks ;)

The sun is back.

The sun is finally back, but we only see the sunset here. It will take another week or so before she'll climb over the mountain top so we can see the sunrise too...

Elk calf


We've had to elk calves and their mother wandering around our house a few days now. More pictures here :)

  1. How fun to see wildlife. We live in the country too, but we mostly see horses and cows. On a lucky day we'll spot a herd of Antelope and we do have quite a few eagles and hawks in the area.

  2. The elk are beautiful! I'm so glad you're seeing the sun! I bet you can't wait to see it rise and set in the same day again!

  3. You have baby Moose! Elk have a white tail and butt with dark fur around their neck. Do you call them elk there? Check out YouTube's video's of elk and you will see what I mean. Elk don't have that huge hump on their shoulders or that long of legs either. Very Cute pictures!!!

  5. Yes, it's a bit confusing ;)
    I had to check it up at wikipedia - and I've never heard about your kind of elk - looks like a deer...

    But it's a European Elk (Alces alces), also known as Moose.

  7. I love how they look like they have white stockings on! Wildlife always make it fun to look out our windows in the winter.

    Here is what our elk look like. http://sweetgrace.typepad.com/the_inadvertent_farmer/2009/03/weeder-elk.html.html
