A while back, we discussed the elk herd on the dry Hanford atomic reservation in central Washington State.  Ryan, a frequent person on this blog, was good enough to show me some photos of the most incredible bull elk from this herd!

I wanted to post some photos, but I became convinced they are copyrighted.  Nevertheless, you can easily find them by using Google.  Search “Google images” with the term “Hanford elk.”  They come right up, and it is well worth it.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
