Rocky Mountain National Park

Took a road trip today from Winter Park to Estes Park Colorado. Great trip through RMNP and Trail Ridge Road.

Great day for a trip, the weather cooperated 99%. Had a nice elk sausage for lunch in Estes and headed back to Winter Park.

Couple of elk, couple of moose and lots of tourist



Bunch more of boring pics

Great pics, thanks for sharing! Love the moose antler shots and all the great scenery. Haven't been to Rocky Mountain National Park in quite a few years, but I recall some of the views you posted. One of my nephews starts grad school at University of Colorado in Boulder in the fall...guess I'll have to get out that way for a visit again soon.
