I have fallen in love with the Rocky Mountains and love the outdoors in general. Elk are some of the coolest creatures in nature and this place is packed full of information for all who are interested in the outdoors and elk.

A highly recommended stop to stretch your legs, 1-2 hours. Make sure not to miss the films shown on the work the Foundation is doing, and make sure to support its' good cause.

If you are a hunter or other conservationist, you will enjoy this stop. The kids love the taxidermy and the hands on exhibits.
