One very cool part of RMNP is Moraine Park. Great big wide open meadow. Lots of great views. Nice hiking. And, this time of the year, if you are really lucky you may see a couple of elk walking around. That is, a couple of thousand. Yep, they all start coming down out of the high country, getting away from the colder higher elevations. And, of course, it's the rutting season. So, if you are real lucky, you might see some elk fighting and/or hear them bugling.
