The Battle of Lake Estes @csgazette
It’s rutting season for the elk in Rocky Mountain National Park and they add immensely to the fall leaf-peeping experience. These two bulls happened to clash in an overflow area of Lake Estes, lending extra drama to their confrontation.
I’ve seen battling bulls before but they’ve always been in a meadow somewhere, usually in Horseshoe Park west of Estes Park. Apparently these two decided to up the ante and fight for water rights as well. Not to mention showing the cows they can walk on water!
