We’ve been told it’s Baby Elk season. . .
We know it’s true, because of the report of a lady
getting between a momma elk and her baby. . .not good. . .
but we haven’t seen any babies yet. . .
so we decided to go searching. . .
The best place to look is the Lake Estes Golf Course. . .there are always tons of elk hanging out there. . .
We saw a few expectant Moms. . .but still no babies. . .
This expectant Mom has a body guard. . .we know this is so, because we saw this pair earlier patrolling the sandbar in the lake. . .
anytime this kayaker would get too close. . .the younger elk would squeal, and move towards him. . .you could tell she was on high alert. . .I’m not sure if this qualifies as harassing the elk. . .but it most be awful close.
We also saw this bald eagle. . .but he was kinda far away. . .we’ll hafta go back and get a better shot.
of course the majestic Rocky Mountains are always worth a moment of awe. . .I just love them!
We have lots more exploring to do. . .so stay tuned!
