Elk watching is a popular autumn spectator sport in Rocky Mt. Natl. Park.  People bring lawn chairs and picnic baskets in the afternoon, and watch as the bulls herd their harem out into the meadows to feed after sundown.  The younger bulls challenge the older ones for mating rights, and a good time is had by all.
