Rocky Mountain Elk (Rocky Mountain National Park)

There are a ton of elk/deer in Rocky Mountain National Park and on my last trip there I spent an hour or so watching a herd of them near the Fall River entrance station near the Sheep Lakes. I kept a respectable distance but was able to get reasonably close to them as I walked a wide circle from the main road and came up behind them next to the lake they were drinking out of.

We are off to the Smoky Mountains this week on Wednesday for a few days and hoping to see some good fall color. To my surprise this is the most popular time of year in the Smokies (I figured it’d be summer) so everyone must be as interested in the fall leaves as I am.
