A Visit to Rocky Mountain National Park

Colorado has so many beautiful places to visit, including nearby Rocky Mountain National Park, near Estes Park. We had a fun road trip last week, driving up to the park through Loveland and along the Big Thompson river.
The road in the park takes you up and up, then gives you views of where you have been.
We continued further until there was snow on the mountains. The views up this high are spectacular !!
Moving above tree-line, we came upon the largest herd of elk I've ever seen in the park. They were right next to the road!
Next we came upon three beautiful bull elks with full racks on their heads!
Our day trip to the park was certainly fun !!

The "herd" picture is really nice!
