There are a lot of lovely mountain towns within Colorado. Estes Park which is located near Rock Mountain National Park is one of the best. When visiting during the Fall one year, we encountered a herd of elk on the outskirts of town. A couple of bull elk were having a disagreement over the ladies. While I did get one good picture of the largest bull, we did our best to steer clear of them. I was glad that we were parked on the side of the road. Some of the cars parked at a nearby the picnic area were boxed in by the Elk.
