It wasn’t what I would call intentional. Looking for zigzags, that is. But nature has a way of showing off in an exquisite setting like Rocky Mountain National Park, offering magnificent examples for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag.

Tourists like us zigged and zagged along the winding highway. Slowly, of course. We didn’t want to miss a photo op left or right or front or back.
And then when we spied a line of cars parked alongside the road. We, too, pulled over for a closer look. Sure enough, those ahead had spotted the prize we were seeking: elk grazing at eventide backed by a zigzag of mountain color.
