The Spring Elk Herd is Frequenting My Yard

Yesterday a herd of about 24 elk came through my yard again. This is likely the same herd that came through on April 22, during a heavy snow.

That dripping sound in the video is caused by melting snow dripping from my roof.

And here is a video of a young one.

Speaking of snow, I've never had a winter/spring season like this one for snow.  There have been more x-c ski-able days this year then I've ever seen, and I've been up here since 1998.  The newspaper mentioned that this has been the snowiest April ever, but may is shaping up for a lot of snow and rain as well.
