Roosevelt Elk of the Olympic ParkThe Roosevelt Elk is one of my favorite wild animals of North America. We have seen them often in the Darrington - Concrete Wa, area. They are larger than regular Rocky Mountain Elk, and very regal. Bring your camera to Forks, WA, and you can usually spot their reddish brown and tan coat colors, among the deciduous trees and grassy pastures beside the Elwha River.
