So this evening we set off on Highway 77 on a quest to find the majestic beasts.
We traveled over the river and through the woods. We drove on paved highways and meandering gravel trails right through the heart of Chequamegon.
When we finally spied an elk we were so excited we nearly split a gasket. We'd like to have seen more, but we are glad we weren't skunked.
Along the way we also spotted 18 deer, 2 sandhill cranes, 1 great blue heron, and 1 bunny rabbit.
