Rocky Mountain National park features plenty of widlife, although you usually have get out of car and onto the trails to see it. While taking a short hike, we rounded a corner and found ourselves less than 20 feet from a large elk. He was as surprised as we were and was nice enough to let us take his picture and keep walking by without incident. However, you must remember that the elk are wild anaimals and don't even think of trying to go touch or pet them.
