    That is great. I would love to be able to see the country as that elk did. Still unspoiled, how awesome
    would that be?

      The North-Forty has changed a lot since that elk walked its rolling hills or waded into the big swamp. Invasive species have taken over and the endless job of trying to eradicate them consumes a lot of my time. But it is an real rush to touch a piece of the past. I’m glad you liked the photo…

        Invasives, the never ending battle. We are dealing with lots of Japanese stilt grass and Autumn olive. Just to name a couple.
        Keep up the great blog. We love it!!!
