Going Wild In Rocky Mountain National Park
While in the Rockies, we had the opportunity to see a number of animals. In fact, a chipmunk (literally) jumped in my lap! Fortunately though we were in bear country, we did not have any ursa encounters and we didn't get to see any big horn sheep, though we did see the lakes from which they get a lot of their vitamins and nutrients. On our last day, we had a close encounter with both elk and mule deer.
