The end of October in Estes Park not only means the end of fall but also the end of the sacred and celebrated elk rut. During this time, we heard captivating bugles, watched (from a safe distance) the bulls compete for their harems, and enjoyed the annual Elk Fest at Bond Park. You all captured this season beautifully. Here are just a few highlights.



The season kicked off with Elk Fest. Here's how much fun we all had. Come back next year and join in. It's free! 


And of course... we can't write about fall without gushing over the colors! 


That's a wrap on fall! Up next: Estes Park gradually turns into a winter wonderland. Tag @visitestespark in your photos so we can reminisce about fall and get giddy for winter.
