Hardware Ranch

When we were younger both our families took us (at different times and not together) to a place call Hardware Ranch.
It is located up Blacksmith Fork Canyon just past Hyrum, Utah.
They are a wildlfe management area for the elk during the winter.
My sister-in-law and niece met us in Brigham City and we ventured up to see the elk.
For a small fee or free, depending on you age, you can go on a horse drawn wagon out to see the elk. The elk are use to the horses and wagon coming through, but they are very leary of strange noises, sudden movement and far off sounds of gun shots.
For the most part they just sit around or eat.

The Dude is handsome. I love this pciture.

My sister-in-law and niece loved the ride and the "reindeer and melk".

This picture isn't the greatest angle, but that is a bull elk dead center. He is a 5x5, they said the really big bulls come down to eat around January.

She wasn't too sure of the "melk" and didn't want to touch it at first.
