Following chewyspaghetti's lead, I made a tiny olive and black capsule for a quick trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park. We spent the night last night, so we could be up before dawn this morning to see and hear the elk bugling and fighting during the autumn rut.

Photo 1: Taken before leaving home yesterday in jeans, olive tee, fur vest, olive scarf, black boots
Photo 2: Before dawn this morning in black sweater, olive cargo joggers, fur vest, olive scarf, black boots
Photos 3-5: Bonus photos of sunrise reflected on the Rockies, a flock of geese over Lake Estes, and snow-capped mountains behind Horseshoe Park. (If you squint, there are actually a ton of elk in the park in photos 3 and 5.)
