Morman Lake Elk

morman lake elk pool_IR.jpgThe herds of elk come mingle about in Morman Lake every year.  One can see them from Forest Road 3 on the way to Flagstaff.  The new borns play in the grass, and the moms laze around in the soggy dirt.

I watched this one little guy very quizzically stalk a blue heron.

The young elk was very amused by this strange looking long necked ‘thing’ strutting around in the weeds.

The blue heron, on the other hand, didn’t think the curiosity or affection was quite as amusing.  I watched the elk follow that blue heron around the pools at Mormon Lake, and the other elk soaking up the water.  Nature at it’s finest!
