We had a beautiful day driving through Rocky Mountain National Park. We saw 3 elk about 2 minutes after we entered the park. There is still a lot of snow in the high elevations so some of the most popular roads are still closed. We went as far as we could go on the Trail Ridge Road and saw spectacular views of the mountains from there. We had to stop at about 11,000 feet at Rainbow Curve and turn back around. We then went on a little narrow winding road through a meadow. We saw several groups of Elk grazing in the meadows. After having a picnic we drove to Bear Lake. On the way there we saw a huge herd of elk. Bear Lake is an 11 acre lake surrounded by mountains. Most of it is still frozen and covered with snow.
