We traveled to Rocky Mountain National Park a week ago for a few days and saw plenty of wildlife. Below are just some of the flora and fauna.
Least Chipmunk (as opposed to a regular Chipmunk) on the Lily Lake Trail
Above and below: Bull elk sunning on the side of the Trail Ridge Road
Ari and I were caught in a hail storm but it was worth it to see these moose. I wished I had my zoom lens.
Baneberry before turning red
Yellow Bellied Marmot
Ducklings on a drain at Lily Lake
Hikers aren't supposed to feed the wildlife, but someone gave this guy a bunch of bread. He can't get much more in his mouth.
Tosh getting ready for the upcoming cross-country season on the Bear Lake trails
This weakened salamander on the Cub Lake trail was covered with ants. I pulled them off and put him in a pond.
Colorado Blue Bells
A fluffed-up Clark's Nutcracker
Wilson's Warbler at Beaver Pond. Probably a female. This was a tough shot.
Tosh and Ari on a very stinky horse trail
A mystery hole off the Fern Lake Trail
This ptarmigan and his mate almost blend into the background
Red Bugs (not aphids) on the Fern Lake Trail
The pretty, but invasive, Scotch Thistle
