Elk everywhere

Elk were everywhere, both inside and outside the park. When we arrived in Gardiner, elk were lumbering around town, wandering through streets and yards. It got to be a joke to say, "Look! An elk!" They became a part of the scenery, and not such a big deal.
I liked this shot because the elk in the foreground was digging at the snow with its hoof to get to the grass underneath. The elk behind and above it is looking back, with a tiny amount of snow on its nose.
In the photos I take after this, the one looking back puts its head back down to keep eating. Apparently people in cars become part of the scenery for the elk, too.
