Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

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.

      Thanks for taking a look at my zigzag pictures. I would have responded to you earlier, but I’ve fallen into the trap of reading all my comments but not clicking on them immediately to respond. You are one of my best faithful followers, so thanks for always being there. It’s a pleasure always to hear from you!!!
