The Elk Meadow King

It's the rut among the Roosevelt elk of Redwood National Park and this fellow has been hard at work ripping up vegetation, feverishly watching over his harem, and bugling his heart out.

Snagged My Line on Something

There are a few things that make the park ranger type cranky. One is obviously trash left behind in a park. It's an unwritten, and very sad, clause in the job description that we pick up trash on a daily basis. Trash that causes distress to wildlife usually sets the cranky-meter off the charts!

This photo of a spike male elk with fishing line [or a gill net] and driftwood sticks caught on his antler was taken at the beginning of the month and he's not been spotted much since. The plan was to tranquilize him once he moved away from the highway, but he's been elusive [probably because he's so embarrassed].

Pick up your trash; you never know whose head it will end up on!

Big Leaf Maple Fall

Fall is very subtle here on the North Coast of California. With many understory plants keeping their foliage year round--and the redwoods only shedding a little this time of year--Big Leaf Maples are the banner species of Autumn here.
