Reason I Hate My Commute #156

Driving home tonight (around 5:40 or so) from Sunriver on the newly constructed northbound lanes (which are very nice), I came about three feet from clobbering a gigantic bull elk (who had an enormous rack of antlers) who decided to skip across the highway in the dark. My car is little and weighs about 42 pounds and would have easily been totaled had I not slammed on my brakes and swerved at the last second.

What's funny (and sad at the same time) is that the area where the near-miss occurred was less than 100 yards (at most) from the underpass on the northbound lanes that was built specifically for wildlife to use to avoid going across the road (it's not on the map, but it's there). Needless to say, Mr. Elk didn't get the memo to use the safe(r) passage.
