We used to have many elk sightings here at Allenspark Lodge;  in our backyard, across the road, sleeping next to the kitchen window . . .  You get the idea.  Over the last 4 – 5 years, the elk seem to have been replaced by moose.  I don’t know if they don’t like each other, but now we see moose often – and elk only on the road into Estes Park.  Yesterday, as Bill was letting his horse Ranger start the summer lawn trimming, these two young moose decided to chat with him – Ranger, not Bill.  Ranger took offense and wanted to leave – now!  Good idea, but how fun to watch these two young’uns go by.
