Longs Peak Area
Wildlife Photos

Different seasons provide different opportunities for viewing wildlife in the Longs Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park regions.

Some of the animals are quite common and can be viewed throughout the spring, summer and fall. Other animals, such as the badger, mountain lion, red fox and the black bear are a little more reclusive and require a little more luck to spot.

It's not too uncommon to see heards of mule deer and bighorn sheep, especially in the lower foothills in the summer months.

In the fall it's easy, not only to see but to hear the elk. Their bugling during rutting season is a sound that will not soon be forgotten if it's a first for you.
