rocky mountain national park

We had a nice day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park at the beginning of October. It turned out to be one of those fall days that brought some rain, some snow, some sun, and some clouds. We didn’t mind the changeable weather since days like this often mean fewer people and more wildlife out and about. I meant to bring my camera that has a zoom lens, but I forgot it and almost didn’t need it because we were lucky to see so many animals up close. These bighorn sheep were snacking right next to the road as we drove through the Big Thompson Canyon.

As always, the scenery in Rocky Mountain National Park was beautiful. The higher elevations had just been dusted with fresh snow.

And we saw several large elk. Can you spot them in these photos?
