Elk Bugling

Standard

Fall is the time of year in Colorado that besides the leaves turning gorgeous colors, the Elk are bugling.  It’s “rut” season in the Rocky Mountains and when you drive up through Estes Park and enter the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) you get to see the whole thing in action.  The bull elk bugle to show their dominance over other males and to attract the females. Sometimes you get to see the bulls antler wrestling with each other – too much testosterone, must be a guy thing? LOL.  Last weekend was beautiful and the colors are beginning to change.  We went to the top of Trail Ridge Road in RMNP which goes over the Continental Divide. We saw a bear, some big horn sheep and herds of elk. Got some great pics!!
