63). Lawrence Elk    Olympic National Park, Washington (June 2002)

After returning to the U.S. in April, I spent a few months getting ready for my second trip around America, then I took off.  One of my first stops was at Hoh campground, nestled in Washington's Olympic rain forest.  One morning while eating breakfast there, I had a close encounter of the Elk kind.  Apparently it was calving season and the Olympic elk were pretty aggressive, including this one I called "Lawrence."  She charged at me several times, so for about 20 minutes I kept my truck between us.
