Little bit of Wildlife

We love our little ranch, and we love being on it - 
but there are days we really need to get away.

So after digging a batrillion feet down to fix a bit of a water leak,
We loaded up and headed up the mountain.

I heard there was a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory that missed me;-)

We went into Rocky Mountain National Park.
It's pretty good Elk viewing around there right now, so we went the opposite way that all the cars were..... and we found some Bucks!

If you recall  - I sort of love Trees, and we were pulled over to the side checking out a tree.
All of a sudden a ton of cars pulled over behind us, realized there were no
wild animals - and they left......
Then he came out from behind the trees

( and yes, I had seen him, he was being patient for me)

I only took about 455 pictures - 
400 of them were trees (ha ha)
So be prepared..... there may be trees in a lot of future posts!
