~~Rocky Mountain Run~~

Rocky Mountain National Park... Though I've visited many times, every time I visit, it is truly like the first time. Awestruck.


Well, these are the closest I could find to "travel gnomes" at the local bear gift shop!  You will see them throughout... 



Entry of the Rocky Mountain National Park.  Everyday is a NEW adventure. 



Wildlife lives in abundance at the park. Some staged, but most doing their thing...naturally.






Many, many deers...

And for those of you that debate over Canon or Nikon...well, the answer is obvious to the locals....



And there are pikas (that you can only see if you HEAR them first) and marmots...

Pika

Marmot
 And a crazy amount of elk... 






This bear in the tree was definitely a favorite spotting... 

This is how the bear looked when first spotted....

...and this is how he looked after the parents of a little girl let her walk up with a stinky bag of fresh popcorn... Morons...
