When I left home at 7 a.m. this morning, little did I know I would encounter an elk only 200 metres from my front door. Luckily, I was driving so the elk got more scared than I did and ran away. Sadly this also meant I never managed to get my camera out in time. As I have never seen an elk before (except for one time in a zoo), I took my time when I got home this afternoon to gather up some elk encounter evidence!!
