The limbs of all the evergreen trees were weighed down by the heavy load of snow.
A Clark's Nutcracker hunted for morsels amid the limbs of one such tree.
Dark-eyed Juncos, the little birds that were the "snowbirds" that I knew as a child, were everywhere today.
A little Downy Woodpecker explored the trunk of a small tree.
Mountain Chickadees, the ones with the white eyebrows, are fairly common here.
So are these critters. Elk wander around the town of Estes Park as well as Rocky Mountain National Park. They are not very wary of humans.
This big bull elk led a small group of twelve cows.
It is very beautiful here and the snow makes it even more beautiful. Tomorrow, I hope to visit the national park again, and, if I'm lucky, see some more birds.
