There’s A Lot Of Coyotes By Lake Estes And The Golf Course This Winter!



I was so surprised to see this sign about the coyotes by Lake Estes and the golf course the other day. We frequently will see a coyote or two roaming in the area.

There must be quite a few coyotes hanging out there this winter to put that sign up!

Bighorn Sheep Loving It Up High On The Rocks In Estes Park



I was walking home from town on Saturday when I saw this herd of about 30 Bighorn Sheep climbing up and all around the tall rocks. They were pretty high!


They maneuvered the rocks without caution and were loving all the photographers on the side of the road clicking away! I zoomed in on the first photograph so you could see them better. Pretty cool, don’t you think?

The Bighorn Sheep Were Jumping Across The High Rocks In Estes Park



I took lots of photographs of the Bighorn Sheep the other day, high up on the rocks near our home in Estes Park. It was amazing to see them jump from one rock to the next, up so high.


I saw this one Ewe jump across the rocks and then her baby follow right after her. What an incredible sight! That was a pretty big jump!

This Ewe had to dig pretty deep to get some of the grasses in our yard for lunch. I love her snow-covered face as she looks up at me.

Adorable, don’t you think?

Magnificent Bull Elk At Sunset In RMNP



The sun was setting as I looked out our bedroom window. There was a 6 pointer Bull Elk up on the hill. I loved how the sun caught his antlers.

And then he smiled at me! 🙂

Longs Peak In Rocky Mountain National Park After The Recent Snow



I wasn’t sure if I liked the part of the photograph of Longs Peak, the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, and the snowy mountains after the recent snow….or the animal tracks up the hill in the foreground.

What do you think?

Bull Elk Looking For Food Under Our Deck After The Deep Snow In Estes Park And RMNP



This Bull Elk was searching for food in the deep 2+ feet of new snow here in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. He found it right under our deck.


I took this first photograph as he looked up at me. I love how his antlers are starting to grow back.

There Was A Black Bear At My Home in Estes Park The Other Night!



It was after dinner the other night when Phil started yelling, “There’s a bear! There’s a bear!”

By the time I ran to the window and got my phone out to take a photograph, he was already 2 windows away. I got a few photographs from my deck as he ran by my neighbor’s house. He was pretty fast. It was a black bear that looked like it had a lighter brown ring around its middle.

We haven’t seen a bear in our yard in years, so this was really cool!

Cute Marmot On the Rock By My Bedroom After The Rain In Estes Park



I hadn’t seen the Marmots in our yard in quite a while. I thought it was because of the heavy rains every day.

But this guy came out and lay on the big rock by our bedroom window at dusk. You can see his coat is still wet from the rain.
