Rocky Mountain National Park

We took our annual trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park on Saturday. We sure missed having Pa & Grandma Danna with us, like we did last year! We took a hike (not to cub lake again, a new trail through the meadow). While driving we saw elk, two moose, and a few big horn sheep. One of my favorite traditions during one of my favorite times of year :).

Oh, this lady! There was a group of people observing this elk (from a logical, safe distance). Then she comes along for a close up shot and all of us tense up waiting for the elk to show her whose boss. But he didn’t. A few years ago, Pop and Gram got too close to a bull elk and he started to charge Pop. Fortunately, the elk changed his mind and left peacefully…leaving all of us (especially Pop) a bit shaken up. Ever since then we like to call Pop “elk bait”, but not to his face.
