On Thursday, July 26, 2018, I traveled from Estes Park to Albuquerque. Albuquerque is my birth place. Thinking I would not need my telephoto lens for this drive, I packed it in a bag. What I did not anticipate was a bull elk standing in the middle of a beautiful valley going down Highway 7 from Estes Park to Boulder, Colorado early that morning. Pulled over to pull the lens out of the bag and took these three shots. That’s my campground site in New Mexico!
