Full Time RV Travel in Estes Park–Searching for Baby Elk

We’ve been told it’s Baby Elk season. . .

We know it’s true, because of the report of a lady

getting between a momma elk and her baby. . .not good. . .

but we haven’t seen any babies yet. . .

so we decided to go searching. . .

The best place to look is the Lake Estes Golf Course. . .there are always tons of elk hanging out there. . .

We saw a few expectant Moms. . .but still no babies. . .

This expectant Mom has a body guard. . .we know this is so, because we saw this pair earlier patrolling the sandbar in the lake. . .

anytime this kayaker would get too close. . .the younger elk would squeal, and move towards him. . .you could tell she was on high alert. . .I’m not sure if this qualifies as harassing the elk. . .but it most be awful close.

We also saw this bald eagle. . .but he was kinda far away. . .we’ll hafta go back and get a better shot.
