Nevada Elk

Nevada Elk
By: Beth Freniere Location: Nevada

This picture was taken in the Monitor Valley of central Nevada. I am fortunate enough to have a job that gets me outside into great scenery and into places that a lot of people don't get to see. Very soon after I started working here, my coworker and I had our "Epic Monitor Valley Day". It was April Fool's Day and he was an hour late because he'd overslept, and I had to wonder if it was an April Fool's joke (it wasn't, he was just plain late). Then, I almost got carsick while we were out driving around to look for sage grouses for a survey. But I recovered and we soon drove up into the mountains, where we stopped to enjoy the pine forest, and then down into the valley, where we saw hundreds of elk on a hillside. We drove to where we could watch them run right past our truck and eventually made our way back to the office to conclude a very memorable day out in rural Nevada.
