Nope, no moose here. But there are elk, and they are apparently introduced. Readers, meet elk:
This individual was just north of the Brewster/Pecos line, cooperating except for sad nocturnal camera-phone autofocus issues. But such is life. We'll take our first elk for the blog however we can!

At least two individuals cooperated for close views the night of the 29th, thankfully no near misses as sometimes is the case - drive safe out there!
