Elk Grazing in Colorado

Elk Grazing in Colorado

On our way back to Denver there was an incredible sight to our left. Elk had come out in substantiontial numbers to graze along the hill, so I stopped to try and capture this incredible sight. I had learned in a previous encounter (at a golf course) that elk can be very skittish. Since they’re quite imposing one on one, I didn’t think having an entire group coming at me would be smart if I startled them.

This time of year (November) in Colorado is close to mating season, so these elk are out grazing in all sorts of urban places. I found a large group on a golf course interrupting the players on this uncharacteristically mild afternoon. And, the peace between human and animal is striking and strong in this city.

There are no more results.
