Rocky Mountain Wildlife

On our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, we saw an amazing number of wildlife. The elk were everywhere, and the chipmunks were so cute and tame! I’ve wanted to see a moose for some time now, so when we ran into a group of pedestrians with cameras alongside the road, I was ecstatic to see a moose grazing in a field. We encountered a few mule deer, a snowshoe hare, and squirrels, too.

Check out yesterday’s post: Scenes from Rocky Mountain National Park.

Day 319: Squirrely Squirrel

For some odd reason, I’ve been wanting to capture a photo of a squirrel for months. I’m not sure why; maybe it’s just the thrill of photographing something that’s so fast and sneaky. On a walk yesterday, I finally caught my break!

This squirrel paused just long enough for me to snap a picture of him.
