Colorado Family Learns 100s of Elk Have Taken Over Their Yard
When you go to sleep in the American West, you never know what you might wake up to. A Colorado family learned this as they awoke to hundreds of elk that had taken over their yard.
This was quite a sight to see as a driver cruised through a small neighborhood in Estes Park, Colorado. If you're familiar with Estes Park, you know there are more elk there than people. That's especially true this time of year.
It's not unusual in Estes Park to have elk in your yard, but it's not common to have THIS MANY elk in your yard.
It's worth noting that there are several mature elk bulls in this group including this big guy situated right by the family's front window.
You go to sleep at night with an empty yard and wake up with an elk herd crowded up against your front door. One of the many things we love about our part of America.
