Rocky Mountain National Park


It is often said of Rocky Mountain National Park that if you don't like the weather you should wait 15 minutes and it'll be different.  I certainly observed that when I was there this past summer.  Fierce thunderstorms would blow in every afternoon, lowering fierce looking black clouds over Trail Ridge Road and dropping hail on hikers on Longs Peak.  The weather didn't faze the fauna though - from the tiny Pika to the Marmot to the Elk (Wapiti), they could be found on every trail and vista.  And the vistas are truly breathtaking (at altitudes in excess of 10,000 feet, take time to acclimate) offering views of craggy mountains, shimmering lakes, and valleys far below.

But, rather than listening to my words, please enjoy a brief visit to Rocky through the camera's lens...
