Nature Notes


  1. These are gorgeous, Terri! The scenery is just beautiful. I love the elk photos!

  2. Beautiful scenery and photos. I love the elk. I hope they are able to put these fires out, it is really sad. So much loss. I enjoyed your photos, have a great day.

  3. My boys were supposed to start their vacation at Estes Park today, but I have a feeling they will be headed to South Dakota instead.

    Hope your vacation wasn't ruined by the fire. Lovely photos, Terri.

  4. Wonderful pictures...I believe those are the same two elk we saw last year. They probably have staked our the site. RMNP is such a beautiful place. Will be there in just 3 wks!!! Hoping all the fires will be under control by then!!! Cathy

  5. Just beautiful! The mushroom rocks intrigue me. Fun!

  6. Wonderful shots. You must be vacationing? I hope the elk are safe.

  7. beautiful animals and rocks. the fire is horrendous, all those homes and the animals that live there.

  8. how wonderful to see the elk. sure hope they can get those fires under control soon.

  9. Gorgeous views! I've always loved it out west most of all other places... I wouldn't mind vacationing somewhere tropical, but I'd LOVE to live in the mountains! Great Elk shots, too! =)

  10. Hi Terri, We were at RMNP last June --and loved it. We hope to go back soon...

    Sad about all of the fires though.. Makes me cry.

    Great set of photos.

  11. Beautiful shots. The CO fires make me so sad. so much destruction!

  12. Incredible pictures!

    How is it that there can be snow on the ground the same time that there is fire?
    Why, just a few weeks ago, we had another freeze, and yet this week, the entire state is on fire.

    You certainly visited some beautiful country.
    Thanks for sharing !!

    Smiles :)

  22. Thanks for sharing your photos. We have friends and family that live near the fires, so we are praying, with everyone else, for an end to this. I like the elk pictures.

  23. Those mushroom rocks are fantastic. I'd love to see those up close!

    So sad to hear about all the burning in Colorado! I continue to prayer for rain for all the poor souls suffering in this heat and drought!
