Caption Contest!


A few weeks back, we spent the weekend in Yellowstone and I thought it would be fun to try to get a funny picture of an animal for a caption contest on my blog. As it turned out, there was a fire in the park, so we were limited to where we could visit. We spent most of our time in the Old Faithful area, which was awesome, but we didn't see as many animals as if we would have in other parts of the park. I had already bought a prize for the contest before we knew the road was closed. I still wanted to do run the contest, so I decided to pick a picture from another trip. The only condition was that it had to be taken at Yellowstone and no where else.

I narrowed it down to 4 pictures, and with the help of my boys, the one we choose is above. I'm going to let the contest go for about a week and will announce the winner next Saturday. All you have to do to enter is leave a caption of the elk picture above. And to make it fair to everyone, I'm going to put the names of everyone who leaves a caption comment into a pot and pick the winner that way. The only rule is you have to try to come up with a caption. Even if you think it's no good, you still have a chance of being picked for the prize. So, what's the prize? The prize is ......


That's a dark chocolate huckleberry truffle bar, in case you can't read the label. And the book is full of great pictures of Yellowstone National Park. Click on the elk pic to see her up close. Also, I had to laugh this morning when I got up and saw my driveway. Remember the picture I posted yesterday? It looks nothing like that now. There must be 3x as many leaves, if not more. It rained all day yesterday and now it's windy, so it's solid leaves out there now. Wet leaves, at that. Anyway, next Saturday I'll post the winner, as well as repost the picture with all of the captions -- good luck!
