“The Beast”
 
Last Thursday, when the roads reopened and we were no longer confined to the beautiful ranch, those of us that were still in Jackson Hole, went to the National Elk Refuge for a sleigh ride. We loaded up onto a sleigh with our guide Jason and our 5,000 pounds of horse power named Sam and Elliot. As we rode out we all spotted the largest Elk I have ever personally seen. We all agreed that the name Beast was fitting. It was a great opportunity to simply see this magnificent animal much less photograph him. There were about 6,500 Elk at the Refuge, there were many huge Elk, but clearly he was the biggest. Capturing an image of him in front of the Tetons was really neat for us. Of course a top strap breaking on Elliot’s harness and having to be rescued by “Cowboy AAA” is a story for another day…
