Tippy-tippy toe-tippy toe.


While visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Montana some time back, we went to the National Bison Range. The bison were all grouped up in one small area of the range, but out of nowhere, elk would pop up.WM 5404 Bull Elk

The scary thing about some of these elk is that they walk on their tiptoes. One minute they’re not there and the next minute…surprise!  Without using just their toes, how else could they sneak up so quietly? I admit, I’ve never seen them walking on tiptoe but that doesn’t mean they don’t. Just because we can’t SEE little green men walking amongst us, you wouldn’t deny their existence would you? I rest my case.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to go take my invisible dog for a walk…anybody out there have chocolate? I think I might be a quart low…

    1. Thank you for the clarification…I’m not current on the rules and regulations of the elk world.

        1. I will post a few more images from another visit out there…a whole herd that time. My son has been very, very good at cautioning me about getting too close or out of the car.
