The videographer was going for a classic style with this video. In the spirit of Charles Kuralt’s “On the Road,” there is no music, just the silent view of 50 Roosevelt elk making their way through the surf for no apparent reason.
It seems to be fairly common to see elk on the Oregon coast, though. Several videos appear on YouTube as beachgoers look on in awe with their smartphones.
What a sight that must have been in person!
