Morning run: Started off the day with a very cool run (literally, it was 47 degrees!). I'll let the photo essay below tell today's story:
|Grounds of the YMCA where I'm staying and started|
my run. Yeah, the view isn't too shabby!
|Heading out on neat singletrack trail on |
|Whoa, came around the corner on the trail and face-to-face with this guy!|
Thought it was a moose at first, but a ranger I later showed photo to confirmed it as an elk.
|Ran along Glacier Creek, the boundary|
between YMCA and Rocky Mtn Nat'l Park
|Jana came out with for a second loop and|
|Trail continued into National Park, but I only followed for a |
couple miles as I was completely winded at altitude.
|"You can take the boy out of the jungle, but ..."|
|Bierstadt Lake: elevation 9,500'|
|I was sitting on log at lake eating my lunch,|
when I heard rustling in the grass and this
guy came out right next to me!
(I'll leave Jonny to identify.)
