"Hallett and Her Elk"

Moraine Park, Rocky Mountain National Park

This morning we had thick fog and a breaking snow storm. I shot this image from the Moraine Park Museum shortly after sunrise. A herd of elk sat below the tree while fog lifted and the clouds separated around Hallett Peak. (This image is also available in black and white)

Unfortunately, as I got out of my vehicle for this shot I somehow locked myself out of the car. About 20 minutes later the first car came into the park and I was able to borrow a cell phone and get help. :-D
