On Alert (read below)
I spotted this bull elk one afternoon along the lower reaches of Trail Ridge Road. Naturally, I pulled over to take pictures, leading to the inevitable jam-up of traffic, everybody wanting to get a good view and photo. I was getting frustrated with this elk because he kept eating grass and wouldn't look up for a good "pose". Then...among the "herd" of cars a car alarm went off, "honk, honk, honk,...". That made quite a disruption to the peace, but was a perfect way to get a striking pose out of this otherwise stubborn elk!
