Elk's On Notice

The Elk cows are always on notice when they hear their bull's bugle echo throughout the Rockies. Always close behind, the bull herds his harem up the steep mountain, while keeping them in line. Every day they make their evening climb from the lush vegetation of Forest Canyon to the high elevation of the Alpine Tundra, for their evening ritual in Rocky Mountain National Park.
