There are several herds of Roosevelt Elk in Trinidad, and we found two of them.
One of the larger of the herds stays near the Elk County RV Park
This was the buck of the herd - he wasn't acting aggressively, but wanted us to know he saw us taking all of these photos
A smaller herd stays near the Elk Meadow cabins, where you can wake up in the midst of the herd. There were at least 3 young bucks lounging around at this spot.
An older buck stayed close by
