We recently returned from Estes Park where we routinely saw a herd of elk (40-60) brousing by our cabin in the mornings. After a few days at home we felt elk-homesickness ( a benign but bothersome affliction) so we drove about ten minutes west to Lone Elk Park
where we found a small herd of elk and felt much better. This is the "lone" buck.
This is one of his harem of about twenty. They were pretty scrawny but better than nothing.
