Yellowstone Lodges just posted a newsletter with some photos, videos, and recordings of the elk rut. This annual mating ritual occurs in the second half of September all across the West, but the two best places to observe in are in Yellowstone NP and Rocky Mountain NP. You can see there newsletter here, but we also wanted to share some of our favorite photos of this time. Enjoy!
We, Harley and Abby, are the parents of 7 boys and 1 girl whom we regularly drag into any and every national park we come near to. We love our parks and know that the only chance we have of keeping and maintaining this priceless resource is to give our children a love of them too.
