Doug Beezley Photography | Wild Horses, The Snowy Range & Rocky Mountain National Park - August 2013 | Rocky Mountain National Park & The Snowy Range

Before we headed to Green River, Wyoming in search of the wild horses, we had an overnight stay in Estes Park, Colorado and ventured into Rocky Mountain National Park in search of wildlife. We went over Trail Ridge Road to the Kawunuchee Valley where the headwaters of the Colorado River provide ideal moose habitat. And, they were there. Along the way we saw elk (at long range), a pika storing grass for the winter, and a Golden Marmot. Not exactly the Serengeti but it was fun.

Similarly, our visit to the Snowy Range in Medicine Bow National Forest was a short overnight appendage on the tail end of the wild horse tour as we worked our way back to Denver and return to our respective home cities. We were fortunate to see a large bull moose in the Snowies along with a beautiful sunrise at Lake Marie sans any clouds that would have made the sunrise perfect.
