Elk storm through downtown Estes Park.

At first look, it seemed like perhaps Santa's reindeer were taking a route to the North Pole via Estes Park. 

But, open closer inspection, we realized this video was hundreds of elk - not reindeer - prancing through downtown Estes Park. 

Still, at least they observed traffic signals and headed through an intersection when they had a green light!
