What are You Doing Back There?
On my recent trip to Colorado one of my must visit places was Rocky Mountain National Park. I spent a good part of my growing up years there watching the wildlife,hiking, fishing and camping. The Rocky Mountain Elk found there are one of the the most popular animals to watch in the park. Elk jams caused by traffic stopping to watch the elk are common in summer.In winter this is less of a problem and I had plenty of opportunities to watch the elk with few people around.The most fascinating sight of my whole vacation were the magpies feeding on ticks and other parasites on the elk. I just loved watching them. The elk provide food, shelter, protection and warmth. In return the magpies pick off the parasites off of the elk. God's love and blessings to all, chris
