We did not see any Elk at all. When we headed out, surprisingly we saw a dozen or so big horn sheep. If they stand still, it is difficult to notice them in a driving car.
Beautiful place however, we did not see any elk. I believe we were too late in the season only animals we seen were a couple deer and some squirrel’s. We took a side-by-side through the park and put on 50 miles all together. Overall still a beautiful place. Just a bummer about the wildlife.
What’s not to like about the Elk refuge? We didn’t take the tour but drove around the back side. The elk were all right in the middle of the refuge so we didn’t get a good look at them. But, there was a bunch of mountain goats climbing the cliffs and just relaxing in the grass.
