Favorite thing: Elks abound throughout the park, but especially within the first fifteen miles of either entrance. Elks have appeared as high up as the Alpine Visitor Center at the top of Trail Ridge Road. Most of them are to be seen along the Colorado River on the west side, or on the east side between the area comprehended by the Sheep Lakes and the end of Bear Lake Road.
Fondest memory: Elks are in the fall rut starting in September. The horns on the bulls reach their greatest proportions. Competition for females is intense, and from the western campgrounds, the bugling of elks rings through the starlit nights in September and October.
