Elk Safari, Elk-Themed Fun

Follow hilly back roads to the Quiet Harmony Elk Ranch, which features both drive-thru and walking Elk Safaris, along with an Elk Encounter, during which you can feed them from a golf cart.

When you've seen all the elk you can see (and they are impressive), try the bugle speed-slides or the pedal cart track. The ranch features a trading post that offers a very thorough array of elk products (take home some elk steaks and avoid eye contact on your way out).

If you thank an employee, you'll hear a cheery, "You're elkome!"
