A Wild "Tail-Gate" in Estes Park
Colorado is known for its wildlife, but it's taken to a whole new level each fall in Estes Park when the elk population rivals the tax payers in town. Estes Park, on the border of Rocky Mountain National Park, and only an hour from Denver, is home to one of the country’s largest wild elk concentrations. And every "Elktober," over 3,000 elk residents get together to up their Census Report. Estes Park deserves more than a peak at elk romance, so extend your stay with the Ultimate “Tail-Gating” Experience – four days of wildlife watching, off-roading, picnicking, and touring Rocky Mountain National Park.
