A Gathering

Happy Leap Year Day! On Saturday our forecast was that we would have temps that got up to the 70's, so what better day than to go to the mountains. Unfortunately, when we arrived at Estes it was cloudy,windy and cold-so no hiking for this gal. We drove into the Park and saw the biggest gathering of Elk we've ever seen in one spot. It looked like all the Elk that live in the Rockies were in one area. Couldn't resist taking some pics.
This group is only a very small fraction of the entire group.
The next surprise we had was seeing were Mule Deer; we have never seen them up in the park before.
It was so fun, but we were disappointed in the weather when we got home-apparently the clouds had followed us. Yesterday however was beautiful and we even saw a baby Bald Eagle in a nest~we hope to go back today to get some photos.  I've got a very busy day-walking with friends,  going out to lunch with another friend and then taking a neighbor to a nearby mall to look at a home decorating store.  After quilting yesterday for 5-6 hrs, I think my hands will be happy to take a break today.


  1. Great photos! Did you leap over to take them? BOL! We told mom that was too dumb to say!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  2. You sure are busy! Good for you!

    I didn't do much this weekend, not sure why.

  3. The elk are such an incredible creature!!! Thanks for sharing. Mom says to bring on the good weather this weekend as she heads to Denver for a couple of days.
