Rocky Mountain Wildlife

We saw loads and loads of elk while we were in the national park. They love being there, because they can't be hunted within the park. I love it because they will get close enough to you to get some great shots with the camera! These bulls were obviously distracted by something, but we had a whole group of cows (female elk) that were sitting 20 ft from us and were staring right at us! It was great.
My husband obviously missed the sign that says "don't feed the wildlife" but apparently so did a lot of other people since these little critters ate right of his hand! They won't do this on a first time encounter! It was pretty neat though, I must say.

These birds didn't like all the attention the squirrels and chipmunks were getting and they pushed their way in! They were really beautiful though, and to see them up close was great! The kids could of stayed there all day, but the sun wasn't going to stay with us!


  1. Aren't the elk majestic!! What an amazing Creator we have!

    My dog would've had that chipmunk for a snack. :-)

  2. I've never seen elk up close except at a zoo. How beautiful! It's so great to capture God's creation in pictures.

  3. Our lab, Harley, would have eaten that chipmunk as well! I love how safe the animals feel in the parks and wildlife reserves!
