Mu husband and I are planning a trip to Denver at the end of Sept/ early Oct, and we want to drive to Estes Park/Rocky Mountains for a day. I'm very interested in seeing elk and was wondering what the the best place/time of day is to see them during that time. Also, we might be there Sept. 30-Oct. 3, and it looks like Elk fest will be going on at that time. How congested is the town and park during that time? Will the restaurants and stores be really crowded, and will we be able to find parking in town?
Also, is there a good, casual restaurant in town or in the park where we'd be able to get burgers/sandwiches for lunch and dinner?
Thanks in advance for your help.
