Elk Passing in Front of Our Car
Another weekend, another trip to the Land Between the Lakes for me and Michael. Saturday, while in the Land Between the Lakes, I overheard a few workers talking about their commutes and I couldn’t help but think, “I bet we’re here almost as much as y’all!”
This part of Kentucky is just off the charts beautiful and provides endless fun with a million and one things to do. What with Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, three of the best Kentucky State Resort Parks, The Hitching Post, and the Land Between the Lakes ALL within a short drive of one another… who can blame us for being regulars?
Naturally we spent time in the Elk & Bison Prairie – one of my favorite places anywhere. We normally hit the prairie around suppertime, but we were early Saturday. Fortunately, there were still plenty of wildlife to photograph and enjoy.
At one point, we were watching a turkey scratch and roll in the dirt – then, as we slowly began to drive off, he acted like he was racing the car. You haven’t seen cute until you’ve seen a turkey run!
A few bison were near one watering hole and a group of elk were enjoying a beautiful afternoon in the shade.
Whenever you go, always be sure to check around the watering holes – there are several and the animals frequent them regularly, especially in the warmer weather.
