Just another Estes elk jam

For residents of Estes Park, Colorado, elk jams — traffic tie-ups caused by elk crossing the road — are routine in fall and winter. Usually it’s a brief delay, tolerated by residents and enjoyed by visitors.

This particular elk jam distinguished itself by its numbers  — as many as 136 animals counted by one observer. It was recorded January 16 by Tim Buck, aka The Local Herd, an artist lucky enough to call Estes home.

Life’s a little different in the mountains, isn’t it?
