It’s been a breezy day here in Estes Park, but it hasn’t stopped people from getting out and enjoying the mountains! A guests just came in to book time in the hot tub after a hike up to Bierstadt Lake and then up to Emerald Lake. I’m a bit envious that they were out exploring the park today, but I can’t complain too much. I’m sure there are a handful of you who would love to have my job of hanging out here on the slopes of McGregor Mountain watching the clouds roll by and enjoying the wildlife!
I went for a little bit of a walk this morning with the camera in hand to get some footage of the happenings on property. I was hoping for the elk and the marmots to be out, but they were no where to be found. Instead, I got some landscape footage and a bit of the smaller critters. One Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel in particular posed for me a while and munched on his Iris leaf, had a nice yawn and retreated to get a nap, I’m sure.
Enjoy the video!
