Wish we were still there, as the temp hits 100 today in N. Texas. Visited Mt Evans, Rocky Mountain National Park and wanted to drive thru RM Arsenal NWR(to see world class mule deer in velvet), but it was closed due to the plague in prairie dogs. All photos taken w/Nikon P1000.

Found moose just outside Aspen & Breckenridge.

On top of Mt. Evans we saw quite a few mountain goats, several bighorn sheep ewes, but no big curl rams around. Also spotted a 'whistle pig', or marmot.

Up top of trail ridge drive in RMNP, there was a large elk herd, along with some nice bulls. Mule deer and magpies were found at lower elevation near Moraine Park(where all the famous bull elk fighting photos during the rut are from).

Estes Park has a large in-town population of both deer & elk.

Mountain scenery - photos don't do it justice, you have to see it in person. Maroon Bells near Aspen.

I'll be heading up there(RMNP) in about a month and gotta admit I'm pretty excited. Thanks for posting the pics, and you're right, photos almost never do justice to mountain scenery

Did you drive on that harrowing road through RMNP? The one with no guardrails and sheer drops to your death if you don't pay close attention?

Cool photos, you could have brought back a little of the cool weather.

I spend my summers in Colorado. Everywhere you look it's like a calendar. Makes it hard to come home to Texas.......and I love Texas.

Great pics sir. Last time we went stayed in Alma, just south of the pass from Breck. Very quiet small town.

A Democracy is when two wolves and a lamb vote on the dinner menu. That is why this country was not designed to be a Democracy.

I have tentative plans to visit Breckenridge during ski season! I was up in that area many years ago during the summer it's beautiful.
