Elk by Lava Creek
I am sitting in the gift/coffee/internet shop (High Country Espresso) in Gardiner sipping on a delicious mocha taking full advantage of the internet and completely happy that someone else is running the espresso machine and serving me.
My travels today found me admiring the bull elk by Lava Creek. Besides bison and one coyote this was the extent of my wildlife viewing for today. We received about 6 inches of snow in Mammoth these past few days and it has been giving my broom a workout. Everything looks wonderfully white here, especially the trees with snow on the branches.
I know I have commented on my lack of news in the Park and this really hit home yesterday when I found out that the Minnesota Vikings were in the playoffs. I couldn't believe that I somehow missed this important bit of information. I guess it was a good thing then I wouldn't of had days of anticipation under my belt when they lost last night.
