Video: Massive Herd of Elk Makes for a “Colorado Traffic Jam”

Getting stuck in traffic is the worst, unless the traffic happens to be hundreds of elk crossing the road. That’s the sort of jam I wouldn’t mind seeing on my morning commute.

A motorist in Fort Garland, Colorado was caught in a traffic jam caused by hundreds of elk crossing the road. The animals were moving so quickly and in such a tight formation that it almost looks like a flowing river of elk.

While this is not an entirely uncommon sight for Rocky Mountain residents it’s still pretty interesting to watch. Maybe Fort Garland needs to install an elk crossing sign at this location?
