I went to Colorado for a week this past September. (My third painting trip to Colorado, Kevin Menck...you have some catching up to do.) I spent half of that week in Boulder doing city things, so I had very little time to paint. I still cranked out 5 paintings, but I only feel like posting one.
This was a gorgeous little area in Rocky Mountain National Park, near Estes Park. The next day, this area was flooded with a herd of about 25 elk, mostly females. Two bull elks were locking antlers over all the lady elk. (so I heard...I was busy "trying" to paint a sunset)

I had better luck with photography: (click to enlarge)

A close-up of a bull elk...I was about 50 ft away.
Dream Lake ... appropriately named!
