Valle Grande Elk Herd

 Above: Elk in the distance on the floor of the Valle Grande. Below: Two close ups of herd below. Much of the film The Missing filmed in the Valle Grande area which is on the up and over to the west side of the mountains above Los Alamos.


  1. That is a lot of elk! I don't think that I've seen that many together at one time. That would be something to see.

  2. Actually, the herd was much further off the the road than the zoomed pictures showed. There were probably 2X the number of elk in that area than is shown.

  3. That's impressive. At first glance of the 1st photo I thought they were birds!
