Getting Back To Nature At Rocky Mountain National Park

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Albuquerque Homes Realty * www.AlbuquerqueHomes.com

Getting back to nature at the Rocky Mountain National Park was an experience neither my wife nor I will ever forget.  The fall colors were amazing, October 14,000-foot snow-caps intriguing, wild life abundant and the chilly nights perfect for sleeping.  We were fortunate enough to catch a herd of Elk at dusk grazing near a stream.  The huge bull didn’t appreciate the clicks of the camera and let out a deafening bugle call for his ladies to head back across the stream and he meant right then!  On a full moon night the screams of coyotes and wolves echoed with the kills of the night.  The Elk, Deer and Moose called for their mates as fall is mating season and the bugling was heard for miles.  Quite the experience of color, nature and us taking in Mother Nature at her finest at Rocky Mountain National Park.

Hi John - I'm delighted that you enjoyed your visit to my backyard. Perfect timing - the elk are everywhere right now, but the moose are a bit harder to run across - I sure am glad they're coming back and doing well.

Hey John, thanks for sharing another great outdoor adventure with us. I love this and spent time there last year viewing the same scene - it's amazing. Love Colorado in the fall. I also love to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Hi DJ,  It really is an exceptional park, the hiking is awesome and not so over crowded as I have seen on too many other places.  A gorgeious place indeed so glad my fellow Rainer's have enjoyed the same experiences.  We just need to get together for a little party! Have a great weekend.

Hi John,  This is one of Will's favorite places to go.  When I stress him out too bad, he puts his wife in the car and takes a day in the Park.  Great pictures.  Love the moose!

Hi Belinda,  I can certainly see why it would be one of his favorites.  I'm a tad jealous you live so close to this gorgeous place.  Maybe I'm in for a relocation ;>)  Oh but then the snow..

Marco, Oh wow I would love to go on a safari!  That has to be so fun and fascinating. You must share photos of that trip with us in the rain!  That big bull thought I was getting way to close and I have to agree!

David,  Glad you drop in and appreciate the comments.  I have to agree Mother Nature does show her true colors this time of year especially in the high country.  I bet you have some amazing colors in CT as well.  Have a great weekend!

That looks like a great trip, and one I would love to go on again before I leave this plane.  Thanks for the up close and personal shots of you and the moose.  Not Debbie either.
