Deer Lakes

We went up Slumgullion Pass to check out the sunset from Windy Point Overlook, but we got there too early, so we went over to Deer Lakes to see if we could spot any moose.

Not a moose, just a shocked elk.  We were disappointed.

But then we spotted this young bull moose closer to the lakes

He found some delicious bushes

And his older brother decided to show up, too

A moose greeting (assuming moose greet each other by touching noses)

The moose were almost oblivious to the crowd that gathered to watch them
