This week’s Northwest Moment photo was taken by Carrie Uffindell.
In many of our Northwest Moments features, we’ve focused on the natural beauty of the Northwest – which is abundant. Today, we swap our focus from flora to fauna – the many animal creatures that we share this wonderful part of the world with. In Carrie’s recent travel guide for us, the most underrated attractions in the Northwest, she gives us an insight into many wonderful spots such as the Oak Creek Feeding Station in Naches, Washington.
This is where the supplemental feeding of the Yakima elk herd – up to 1,200 animals including 90 branched-antlered bulls – happens every year from mid-November to March. It’s a wonderful experience for children and adults alike.
