Photo and caption by Richard Allen
This Photo was taken near Girdwood Alaska southeast of Anchorage. I was on a ski trip and was on the road heading south when we spotted this herd of Elk. I stopped and grabbed my camera. I was able to get fairly close and was lucky enough to capture this image. It was brutally cold that day but the elk did not seem to mind. They were with family and happy to be roaming free. They stay close to one another for warmth and protection. I love the herd family.
Location: Girdwood, Alaska. United States.
