14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Elk in the Rocky Mountains

This was in Rocky Mountain National Park. This elk was one of around 20 elk in a herd next to the road. There were many tourists stopping and trying to approach the herd, but the park rangers did a good job of keeping the animals undisturbed.
