Good article and pic today, in the Denver Post,
of an elk herd in the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge, on the edge of Boomfield, about four miles from here. Real close to Nate's office. Competing groups are fighting over opening it up to public access. I have mixed feelings as I'd like to hike in there, but don't wanna see the wildlife disturbed. Kind of a 'gray area'. Some of the largest Mule Deer bucks that I've seen anywhere, are just a short bike ride from home, in the refuge, where you occasionally have to wait for the elk to cross the road.
