Description

This Fall I was in the park during peak Fall foliage enjoying the leaves and elk rutting season. On this late September day there was a large bull elk with a herd of approximately 20 cows about 1/2 mile from the road. As several challengers approached the herd, he would strut out and begin to bugle. Nothing like standing in a valley hearing the sounds of elk bugling echoes.
