I spent Friday night at Rocky Mountain National Park and then spent all day Saturday driving through the park and photographing wildlife. I me many wonderful people and saw great wildlife.

Friday evening, I saw many elk, including a large bull that had already shed its velvet and polished its antlers. It even bugled twice!

On Saturday, I saw and photographed Pika, Marmots, Weasel, Big Horn Sheep, Elk, and Moose.

I saw 12 moose, including 3 bulls, 2 calves, and 7 cows. One memorable event was encountering a weasle hunging pika at the rock cut. It was a geat trip that I enjoyed very much.
