Normally an abrupt awakening at sunrise would result in me being a very unhappy camper (literally), unless you are shaking me awake with, “Sarah! Elk! Meadow! Camera! Sarah, bring your camera! Elk!!”. Needless to say, I hopped up with a quickness that I hardly ever experience in the mornings, and we scampered as close as we dare (which wasn’t very close, to be honest). What an amazing animal!
