Elk on the Beach

Elk on the beach?

I typically associate elk with snow covered mountains but yes, there are elk that live along the coast and spend part of their time sitting on the beach!

Meet the Roosevelt elk - the largest of the four surviving subspecies of elk - who live from Northern California into Washington on the Pacific coast.

 

This elk was even nice enough to bed down in front of a cabin, right in front of a sign that says "Roosevelt Elk"!
