Elk at Whitney Valley

Driving back from Baker City, I came across a large herd of elk in the Whitney Valley, more or less midway between John Day and Baker City. There were actually two herds, less than a mile from each other. Obviously, when they notice someone stopping the car, they trot away from you, but I was able to take a few photos of these two herds, the first one with 40 heads, the second with more than 60 heads, including one male, whom you can see leading his girlfriends for a Friday night hangout at their local favorite place.
