young elk

Oh! I'd better keep writing because I'll need to help Denise with words on our next trip too. That's just a couple of weeks away now...

We saw lots of elk in Colorado. Sometimes they were standing out in the open, sometimes they were in the underbrush feasting on grass and low leaves (and maybe small branches!) from trees. The easiest place to capture them with the camera was on the golf course in Estes Park. At this time of year it doesn't look like the golfers can depend on an open space to play golf. Hmm... maybe the elk let the golfers on the course early in the morning.

I think these two are very young.
