The elk were not moved by the recent storms that turned the White Wolf Mine into a ‘winter wonderland. This is a select set of photos (telephoto) that reflect the general elk activity. Which isn’t much. They hang out, they paw the snow, they eat, mate (later in the year) and prepare to have calves in springtime. Yearlings are still running with the herd, staying close to their mothers, but it’s evident that they’re being weaned.
