Elk Jam

In Estes Park, an "elk jam" is the traffic jam caused by elk doing what elk do ...  head butting, bugling, eating, or just standing there. The elk are hard to see in this photo because of all the cars. Visitors in the town are especially prone to stopping, cameras at the ready, whenever they see elk. Sometimes it takes several minutes of waiting for the cars to get through an elk jam, especially when the elk are "on parade" leisurely walking single file across the road.

This video comes from our local Estes Park News.
