Best View In The Parking Lot?

Published by at 7:30 am under Mammals

October’s a good time to take in fall foliage and the autumn activities of Pennsylvania’s wildlife.

If your travels take you to Elk County, stop by the Visitor Center on Winslow Hill Road in Benezette to see Pennsylvania’s elk.

You might get lucky and find them in the parking lot, as Paul Staniszewski did above.

On the other hand, elk are pretty busy right now and more likely to be in their natural setting.  This is their mating season.

p.s. Today I’m hiking at the Quehanna Wild Area in nearby Clearfield County. The fall foliage is colorful but it is *cold*! The growing season just ended with 23 degrees this morning.

    Stay warm and stay away from rutting bull elk, Kate ;-)
