"There is nothing so American as our national parks. The scenery and wildlife are native. The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us. The parks stand as the outward symbol of this great human principle." Franklin D. Roosevelt

Elk & Calves at Mammoth

A common sight in Mammoth is the elk roaming the streets. Here is some mama elk with their calves relaxing on one of the lawns with the Mammoth Hotel in the background. Sometimes rangers need to come out because the elk decide to hang out right by the entrance of the hotel preventing people from entering and causing some people to get too close.
