I work part time at Sunol Ohlone Regional Wilderness and my frequent trips to this wonderful place let me see some amazing things, especially animals. On Monday, this week, on my way home from the park, I noticed two men on Calaveras Road looking up the hill. One of them had binoculars. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of whatever they were looking at. I pulled over and to my delight was this huge bull elk, not 100 yards from the road. I’ve learned to always have my camera with me and ready to use at all times. I was so happy to capture an image of him and wanted to share with you.

Thanks for sharing that tule elk with us. The Sunol Regional Wilderness is one of the few places in the East Bay Area where you can get lucky enough to see one of those beautiful animals. In fact there’s a whole herd of tule elk there. /Gary
