Elk at Sunset in Rocky Mountain National Park 2

Rocky Mountain National Park

From 12,000' in elevation in Rocky Mountain National Park and just off Trail Ridge Road, an elk watches me watching him. I was hoping he would wait until after sunset before leaving so I could photograph the Rocky Mountains behind him as the sun fell below the peaks. He did just that. Later, as I was packing up my tripod and camera, he, too, decided it was time to go. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
