Herd of elk seen from the train 4 late summer 2000 as we climed the Raton pass.

Keep in mind the train is moving and climing the Raton pass as I take these photos.

The elk are not frightened by the train going by.

Always bring a camera when you travel by train.

Last photo as the train moves past the elk.
