One of the highlights of our recent trip to Colorado was our visit to the town of Estes Park and our drive through Rocky Mountain National Park. I often see 4 legged creatures with antlers around our neck of the woods, but none as big and majestic as these guys.
We were very excited to get up close and personal with the elk. They are really big and I wouldn't want to get on their bad side.
Just look at those antlers!! Aren't they incredible creatures.
And the drive through the park was both breathtaking and at times a little bit scary.
We drove to the highest peek some 12,000 feet or more.
Seeing snow up here in July is really something. The temp dropped a good 25 degrees and the air was thin and made me a bit dizzy and headache.
There were just a a few little yellow flowers up this high. Our info said that it can take 50 years for these plants to grow an inch. That just blew me away.
I kind of thought this house could work for me.
Can you imagine their views?
I hope you enjoyed the tour. After I'm home about a week I'm ready to go again.
I'm also joining Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Thanks for coming by my friends,
