Brief Directions

The Peak to Peak Highway goes south out of Estes Park passing multiple 13,000 and 14,000 foot mountains. It is truly one of the scenic routes in Colorado.

Description

I spotted this female moose walking along the Peak to Peak Highway south of Estes Park, CO followed by her 2 calves on an autumn morning. She headed into a thicket of aspens just beside a pullout on the road where I had parked. The 2 calves went deeper into the woods but momma stayed at the edge to eat some of the foliage. Since these animals are large and potentially dangerous, I used a long lens and a powerful flash to photograph her in the shadows.
