We stayed close to home this weekend with a return trip to Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). The highlight of the weekend was an encounter with a friendly, photogenic moose that seemed to enjoy (or at least tolerate) lots of camera-happy tourists. The monsoon rains started a little earlier than expected this year and caught us by surprise leaving us nearly rain-soaked on a couple outings. No complaints here though; the rain was a welcome relief to the dry, tinder box conditions that have been plaguing the Colorado high country.
Duck, Duck, Moose!
