Rocky Mountain Elk

In February while in Colorado, we decided to take a day trip with John and Beth (& Caleb) into the Rocky Mountains to Estes. There is a National Park there, but we didn't aim for that, just the little town at the entrance to the park. It was beautiful for nature lovers. Here in the middle of town, we spotted this small herd of elk. They seemed quite comfortable with us there. As a matter of fact, I think they were as interested in us and we were in them. Of course we didn't try anything confrontational. We had come as friends. They could tell.

Our weather the last few days reminded me of Colorado. We were told they can have 5 feet of snow one day and 70 degrees the next. We just went through similar weather, only not quite as extreme. It was 81 Thursday and now tonight we are expecting a frost. It is 44 now at 10:30.

The big change is much like the difference in our country two years ago and now. The present makes two years ago look like Paradise in comparison. What was in our minds when we asked for change? Boy did we get it. Can we please go back? Even beggars lose out in the end when there is nothing left.
