Hiking in the Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park

Unread postby mountainman on Fri Jun 27, 2008 8:04 pm

Took a hike in the RMNP this morning. Got on the trail about 7:00 AM before anyone else. The runoff is so heavy that the elk didn't hear me coming up the trail and I was able to get some close up shots. The first lake is The Loch and the last lake is The Lake of Glass at 11,000 feet. The snow fields are mostly around 15 feet deep and the snow on the upper trail is 3-4 foot deep.
Great day for a hike!

Beautiful pics, mountainman! I wasn't in RMNP today, but I was playing golf in Aurora! :)

Fabulous pictures! Fabulous hike! What camera did you use? Is primitive camping allowed in RMNP?

Hi Famosperson: Thanks for the nice comments. I use a Cannon SD950is. It is a 12.1 megapixel and does a nice job when enlarging prints. The haze you see in some of the distance shots is smoke from forest fires some distance away and maybe even great distances away. Not typical in this area of Colorado.
