It's not terribly unusual to see elk in the water, but it is pretty cool to see a whole herd of them swimming across a lake.

Estes Park visitors are as likely to see elk at any given time as Las Vegas is to see gamblers on the strip. It's just what they do.

But, it's quite a sight to see this large herd of elk swimming across Lake Estes. Good Bull Outdoors shared the video on Facebook, and we are so glad they did.

It's not exactly great swimming weather this time of year - especially in the high county, but these elk don't seem to mind one bit.
