Some Rocky Mountain Critters. some big some small . ( and some in uniform)

  Elk everywhere : Excited by our first serious encounter with Elk, we drove back to have another look. It was at this point we pulled over to let through a fast moving  Sheriffs car (obviously on an emergency). Much to our dismay it was us  he was after. ..... Apparently even if  there is no other traffic  within 10 miles of you, STOP MEANS STOP. Linda had inadvertantly gone through a stop sign. Much grovelling on a mega scale ensued as a frustrated cop muttering about  'bloody English'  got back in his car & drove off.
