Coming into Rocky Mountain National Park Beaver Meadows entrance, continue straight following signs for Trail Ridge Road, about 25 minutes.
Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 70-300 mm L lens, shot at 70 mm.
While set up just off of Trail Ridge Road around 7am on July 11, 2019, we caught two Bull Elk crossing the Ridge in front of us. This shot is one of my favorites because of the great background. There are so many opportunities for Elk shots down in the valley, but this backdrop at almost 12000 ft really stood out.
