I was fortunate enough to encounter Bull #36 on several occasions. He is more commonly known as "Fred" by most elk enthusiasts. Many do not feel a trip to elk country is completely successful unless they see this gentle giant.

In contrast, the young fawn pictured below is hopefully just beginning life, although there is a fairly high mortality rate from predators and natural causes. Please note that this is not a young elk, which is known as a calf, but rather a whitetail deer fawn. I did not have any close encounters with calves during this trip, although I did see several, which were too far away for good still photography.
