This photo was taken on top of Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was just before the start of the Elk Rut. There were three bull Elk bedded down on the ridge. This one was the biggest and just seemed to want his photo taken. The large mountain on the left is Longs Peak, the tallest mountain (over 14K feet) in RMNP.
