We encountered a bit of a traffic jam as we approached the highest point on Trail Ridge Road. The problem was that many vehicles were stopping to see the elk. According to a forest ranger a herd stays up here year around. It seemed that they are quite use to people gawking at them! Only other animal we saw way off in the distance was a fat marmot, who was sunning himself on some rocks.
We spent one more day in the national park, more on that in the next posting.
