We packed up the twins last week and drove to Rocky Mountain National Park to hear the male elk call to the other male elk – something I guess that happens just at this time of year around dusk. What a sight! My photo does no justice to the scene – not even worth posting (thanks camera)! We got out of the car and there was a female elk right in front of us (a bit scary when holding an 11 month old). Then we saw a field of them and could hear the male elk calling the others for a “fight” I guess? An amazing thing to see even if you have to feed babies in the back of a car for 45 minutes on the way home.
