Thought I'd share a few pics from a hike from this past August. It's always good, no matter how tough hunting has been to go to Rocky Mtn National Park to get a look at what I need to see! The elk were into the rut and this particular bull just about made me have an accident in my shorts. His nose came to within 3 feet of mine at one point and his mood was...lets just say he was all testosterone. If it hadn't been for the large boulders I could have been antler decorations! Very exciting! All these critters are from a long day of walking fairly remote trails in the park. The elk was just off the road however and he obviously knows he's in a national park and protected...that or he enjoyed "playing" with me earlier and knows he had the upper hand!
