Moraine Park with Elk, Rocky Mountain National Park – KeaPOD 23

RMNP elk

My favorite place in Rocky Mountain National Park, Moraine Park, with a herd of female and juvenile elk moving through (14 June 2008; photo by keagiles).

Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, USA, is just an hour’s drive from my home. How lucky can I be, right? I don’t spend as much time there as I would like, but when I do go, I always stop at Moraine Park (not the campground, but the valley itself, with its beautiful meandering stream). Back in June 2008, I was lucky to be able to photograph this scene (though from a ways off). Click on the photo to elklargify*.

I have quite a few photos from Moraine Park, and I think the place is pretty neato, so I’m reminding myself here that a full RMNP Moraine Park post is in order in the near future.

*Thanks to Bad Astronomer Phil Plait for giving me the inspiration to make up funny photo zoom names.
