I live at 7630' in SW Colorado. The back boundary of my property is Ute Indian reservation. The elk move thru my place depending on snow in Dec & Jan to the lower elevations on the res.In the spring depending on the amount of snow still on the ground the elk move back thru my place heading back to higher ground. Early this morning I spotted the first small ( maybe 15 to 20 ) herd moving back up. Not as many as past years but some. Temp low 50's. 90% of the snow gone from my place. Sorry about the picture clarity but the picture was taken under low light early this morning. Herd about 200yds from house.
