Those male elk are battling it out for the attention of those ladies nearby. Boys will be boys! Seconds after this photo was snapped, the switchblades came out. The best thing is that the females couldn't look less interested. I recently listened to a recording of the Mine Train spiel, and when I heard the sound of the fighting elk, I could just picture Disney sound man Jimmy MacDonald snorting into an empty water glass (something he did for other animals noises)!
The Devil's Paint Pots bubbled in bright primary colors. The hues should have changed with the times! Sea foam green; harvest gold; turquoise; avocado. Add a few throw pillows and some adorable drapes for a homey look. A garden gnome is optional.
