This and That....About The Rockies Part I

I'm excited to be able to share some of the summer fun I have had on my new blog! One of the fun moments was 12 days spent enjoying beautiful Colorado. Part of our visit was dedicated to sightseeing and hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park. One great experience was seeing the elk on Ute Meadow Trail. While Mr.thisandthat took professional quality photos, I snapped my own humble photos which you will see below. I was enamored by the herd of mostly female elk which were grazing nearby. One female elk decided to venture really close to me. Although I was apprehensive at the closeness and ventured further down the trail, I needn't have worried as she was simply curious and meant me no harm. She is absolutely beautiful as you can see in the photo!

Here are more elk on Ute Meadow Trail, seen in silhouette.

My heart did pound, when the herd decided to run past me down the mountain and across Trail Ridge Road! I don't have a photo of the whole herd, but here are more pics to give you the general idea!

This experience reminds me of the verse from Genesis: "And God saw all that He had made and it was very good!"
