Elk Calf Alongside the Road – While it isn’t uncommon to see an elk calf alongside the road anywhere in the Yellowstone Ecosystem, it did seem odd that we were unable to determine which of the several elk cows might be the calf’s mother. None seemed to be that close nor paying that much attention. We kept a very safe and respectful distance from the calf so as not to stress it or its mother.
