Lucky for me the big dog was impatient for this morning’s trek through the Colorado wilderness. I am always expecting to see something along the trail, but today held an extra special surprise… a large herd of elk in the golden light of sunrise. Most of the animals were passing silently by in the shade but a few presented themselves against the aspen trees in the beautiful morning light. This one was my favorite. Oh and if you want my advice… get a dog, they are very motivating :)This picture and more are available on my website as wall art, greeting cards and many more cool gift and useful household items!
