Additional Information

After a long day in the saddle two cowboys are taking a break to water their horses where the river is wide and shallow. From the timber across the river they hear the bugle of a monarch bull elk as he gallantly guides his harem through the autumn willows on the opposite shoreline. The elk, with a mixture of curiosity and apprehension, start to scatter up the river to safer areas. Like any king this bull announces his disdain for the intrusion and will start again to work tirelessly regathering the herd. The helpless cowboys can only watch as one of natures' spectacles play out in front of them comfortably from their leather seats. No doubt the memory will ring in their ears for years to come. - Chad Poppleton
