Bull Elk Protecting His Harem Bugling Charging Crowd Estes Park Colorado 2012

This bull Elk had over 40 females in his harem, all on a green and fairway at the golf course in Estes Park by the Visitors Center. We all felt safe staying behind the split-rail fence along the walkway, but the Bull thought a couple of his ladies were getting a little too familiar and came charging at us. Fortunately he stopped at the fence because he certainly could have crossed it easily. The Bull bugling and marking his “territory” was certainly a sight to see! Nature up close and personal is quite interesting!

We hike the Bristol Caverns in Tennessee. Stalactites and stalagmites, some larger than tree trunks and others smaller than straws, fascinate and give play to the imagination. Where some of these formation have grown together, massive columns have been formed reaching from the floor to the ceiling of the lofty rooms.
