Estes Park Elk

Here's a few pictures of Elk in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Longs Peak - Rocky Mountain National Park
 Judging from the Bull personna, most were likely taken in September when they were starting to herd.

One thing about Estes Park, it has a lot of Elk. Big ones, small ones, slow ones, frisky ones.

They sleep and graze on the driving ranges and golf course fairways, they walk the streets and bike paths, they eat your shrubs and fertilize your front entrance. Oh yeah, they like to stop traffic.

What's this coyote doing in an Elk Post?

Stay away from my girlfriends, got it? Where'd they go?

Let's head into Estes Park and put a few rounds on the golf course.
Yep, get ready to see Elk in Estes Park.

Great pictures! Estes Elk tours are a must for me in Fall. Generally there is a large herd nestled between the edge of town and the National Forest.

Pretty lucky to have the wildlife viewing you get in Estes. I've yet to see one, but there have been Moose sightings in Estes valley.

You can see them almost any trip thru Willow Creek Pass going to Walden. Always a thrill.
