Elk NetworkTeenager's Elk Photo Goes Viral

General | February 14, 2018

Zach Rockvam sure liked a photo he took of two dueling bull elk in Rocky Mountain National Park, but what he didn’t know is how much other people would like it too. After he recently posted it to his Instagram page, and Rocky Mountain National Park picked it up, it went viral.

“It’s been really cool to see all these people giving me so much awesome feedback and everyone is super happy for me,” Rockvam told the Reporter-Herald News. “I never expected it to be that big.”

Rockvam actually took the photo two years ago when he was 17 years old while trying out a new camera. He estimates he took about 1,000 photos that day.

“I just like being out in nature and being able to capture a moment and memory…and share it with other people. That’s what I like about it,” he added.
