Just outside of St. Louis is Lone Elk Park, a wildlife management area, with bison, wild turkey, waterfowl, elk and deer. Today I took my daughter (and camera) to see what we could see.

The great advice I got was to go about an hour before sunset. It paid off with elk so close to the road you could almost reach out and touch them.

If you are near St. Louis check it out.

More photos are uploaded in two galleries, one of the girls playing and one of the animals we saw
