13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Olympic Elk in the Hoh Rainforest

My family and I were on a hike in the Hoh Rainforest when we saw a herd of Olympic Elk that crossed just a few yards in front of us. We had seen them before on previous trips, but this was the closest encounter we have had, and I had my camera ready.
