Yaks in the Mountains
These furry beasts were just waiting to have their pictures taken

While driving along Highway 9 in Summit County, we saw these giant furry beasts off the side of the road. Turns out, they are Yaks or at least Yak/Cow hybrids.

This big guy here looked to be in charge, so I spent some time waiting for him to wonder around the field until he looked at me. He didn’t seem too interested in my calling to him, so I couldn’t get a smile, but he was still pretty majestic. It’s always fun to see animals like this a little out of there element. I guess Yaks (the wild kind) can’t live below 12000 feet as the air is too thick for their lungs.
