Tule Elk – San Luis National Wildlife Refuge

Tule Elk - San Luis National Wildlife Refuge

San Luis National Wildlife Refuge is located in Northern California off highway 5 and north of Los Banos - Google Maps Link.  On New Years Day it was a cool, wet, windy morning and I arrived just after sunrise.  In my past visits I often see Tule Elk driving the Tule Elk Tour Route but on this Sunday there were 8 - 10 of them within 100 yards of the fence line.  The sun was rising, the wind was blowing and it was a great Tule Elk photo opportunity.
