I took this photo 5 years ago on one of the short hikes off Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. We are planning to get fairly early tomorrow and escape another hot day here in Boulder by going to the same place, while it still have plenty of snow.
Different perspective changes how you see things in life and in the mountains. View from the water level would make you think that there isn’t much behind the boulder in the center of the lake. Look at my prior post, view from the Andrews Glacier. Changes everything.
