Photography by Kort Duce, Colorado Exposure

In late September through early October the elk rut is in full swing at Rocky Mountain National Park. On a couple mornings and evenings over the past two weeks I saw many elk at Lake Estes in the town of Estes Park. In the park you will need a timed entry between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., which you can only get through the National Park Service online (no tickets available in person or at the entrance gates). You will also need a timed entry for the coveted Bear Lake Road Corridor between 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. Bear Lake In late September through early October, the elk rut is in full swing at Rocky Mountain National Park.
