When the temperature drops and the first real snow arrives, I look forward to the first phone call or email from a North Rim resident that reports, “the elk are back!” It’s exciting every time. They are beautiful, majestic animals; impressive in their size and stature. They keep to themselves and like to rest here, often hidden in the trees. And when a herd of 60 arrives it’s an occasion. Really? Here? Where we live?
I tell you, it’s a privilege.
