I wrote the story, In Search of Elk, to accompany the photos I took while staying at the Grand Canyon. I was a frequent cat sitter, for my dear friends, Kim and Mike Buchheit, Canyon residents, of their sweet lovable cat, Sprout.
During my stay I noticed the Elk moving about the Canyon. One day they were behind the house, next they were on the South Rid, and another time down by the train tracks. I photographed them as they moved about. I wrote this short story originally for my nephew, Tillman, so that someday he and I would visit Grand Canyon National Part to find the Elk.
I love the mysteries and secrets that the beautiful Grand Canyon keeps.
I hope you will enjoy, In Search of Elk as much as I did taking the photographs and writing the story. My picture book is an excellent read-aloud book!
