St. Louis is fortunate to have an abundance of parks. One just a few miles from our house -- Lone Elk Park --is our grandsons' favorite places to go. Especially in the winter when the trees are bare and they can see the animals clearly.
Yesterday we decided to take a drive over to the park. I took along my camera thinking that I might see some elk gathered around one of the saltlicks. Perfect photo idea for today's PhotoHunt challenge. Right?
The elk weren't at the salt lick, but at the bison jam, this big guy was enjoying the salt that was left on the road after a recent de-icing. So I got my photo, anyway.
Here's a few other pictures from the day. This mama elk was checking us out to make sure we stayed in the car and out of her way.
And her baby ran across the road in front of us to catch up with her.
There is always a 'bison jam' and yesterday was no exception.
No one is in a hurry to get out of the way of the autos. Good thing no one in the cars is in a hurry either.
The leader of the herd is a hugh guy with an enormous shoulder hump. And, you can see how proud he is of it. He doesn't mind all the paparazzi in the least.
