Photo detail

Clyde the elk strolls through the first snow of the season in his pen on the Wyman Museum grounds Thursday. His caretakers give him a little extra food during the winter months to insulate him with a little extra fat. Clyde also has a thicker coat grown for the winter and lays in the sun to warm up on colder days.

Craig sees season's first snowfall

Forecasters anticipate 'near normal' winter

Craig residents who looked out their windows Thursday morning saw a scene that's been absent since spring. A few fluffy white flakes were falling from the sky, settling on cars and rooftops around town.

He definately has four legs its just the angle that he is standing that makes it look like that. I truly love the beauty of this creature. He is one of the many things that makes Moffat County one of a kind.
