Elk Feeding

Wow....what a week this has been. Want some advice? If you decided to take an honors Russian Literature class at University, maybe take less credits that semester. That's just some free advice for you. You are welcome.
Just after Christmas my sweet daddy planned a surprise day out for us as a family. He managed to keep the secret for a couple of weeks despite my mum's moaning and frustration!
So....he took us Elk feeding! Along with about 15 other people, we were loaded up on to a big horse drawn sleigh where we sat on bales of alfalfa and were pulled right into the middle of a large wild elk herd. It was spectacular. The elk do not feel threatened by the horses and seem to not register that we are people that could possibly hunt them. The elk immediately came up close and began to eat the alfalfa right from underneath us. They truly are beautiful animals and so majestic in their strength. I have a new found admiration for these creatures. Not that I haven't eaten a good elk steak since then......
