I was quite surprised at the size of the herd. Usually I see them in much smaller groups.
The 'lake' they are wading through is in actuality a pasture. But we have had quite a bit of rain this month.
I took the video with my Samsung phone which does a great job. My hands were shaking from the cold. I allowed YouTube to take out the shakiness and they did a good job, but it truncated the video to some extent. Either way it turned out pretty nice. It was a gorgeous almost mystical scene with the mist, the sunrise and the elk ploughing through the water.
