The Look

Elk looking sternly-1949

They came back into the field below the Sitka Center to say goodbye to us since we are leaving tomorrow.

Observer

Toy

Someone left this creature on the concrete barrier at the end of Savage Road in the Cascade Head Ranch. The road dead ends at the Salmon River Estuary. I image that the person who left this figure wanted it to look out on the beautiful Salmon River Estuary as it leads out to the Pacific Ocean. If you look back on my blog posting you will see some of those landscapes.

Note: This was my first effort at shooting night photos without a flash and it was fun.

Happy New Year to everyone.
