Columnist Has New Hiking Companion



For years now, I have been writing about how charming the wildlife are in Christopher Creek. We are so fortunate to live in an area that has an abundance of different kinds of wildlife.


This big guy is better known as Droopy. One of the resident locals named him because his antler droops over his left eye.

I hike every day in the area and run into many of these charming characters. There's this one elk, Droopy, that manages to find me just about every time I take my hike.

One time, I was out walking and he came up behind me and scared me half to death. After that, I decided I was going to walk with carrots in my back pockets. This day, Sam Conklin decided to take out on a hike with me and on our way back Droopy decided to tag along, so I cut through a neighbors yard and Sam managed to take this picture.

I don't recommend that anyone get this close to any elk. Droopy has been around for about two years now and for some strange reason he seems to know who I am. He has showed up so many times that I think he wants to hike with me. Maybe he is also

trying to get in shape.
