Rocky Mountain NP 10/31 - 11/02
« on: November 06, 2008, 10:21:28 PM »
Not even a week after my awesome BIBE trip the wife and I went up to visit her best friend in Denver.

We got a nice little cabin in Estes Park, just outside the National park. This was a NON-hiking "tourist" trip so we pretty much just drove around the park and spent time in the cabin.

I did have a good time driving the park and seeing a lot of cool areas of the park (from the car anyway)

here are some of my shots from that trip

I actually like Stingreys RMNP photos better than mine...

Great shots James. Looks like the elk are getting ready for a long winter.
