Spent last week in Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park. We were very fortunate to see 3 of the 4 big animals.
For the first 4 days we save very few elk. Then on Thursday/Friday they showed up in great numbers getting ready for the fall rut.

This was shot near dark when a herd of over 70 came across the road. Here was the big guy keeping an eye on all the girls.
