Summer Time in RMNP

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.

Would it look the same?

Snowed In

On the front range most of the snow has melted over the last few days. Not the case in the high country deep in the mountains. There’s plenty of it and will have for the next few months.

Come visit Colorado and enjoy it as well!

Somewhere in RMNP 

I took this small panoramic photo on our way to the Sky Pond in Rocky Mountain National Park. So much snow, it was very impressive.

Loch Vale 

Today was another awesome day at the Rocky Mountain National Park. We went hiking (snowshoeing) to the Sky Pond. Weather was absolutely perfect, no wind, have never seen it so quiet there. Since last week they seems like got another couple foot of snow, so everything was white snd puffy. At some spots trees were covered with so much snow you could almost not see the trees under it.

I took this photo on the way back, as we were walking across the Loch Vale. Clouds were coming in as we were leaving, bringing more snow.

Snowshoeing to Jewel Lake 

Today we had fantastic day at the Rocky Mountain National Park. Got up early, drove up to the Glacier Gorge parking lot and did 6.6 miles loop in snowy wilderness. Thst parking is a good one to start hiking for Black Lake or Mills Lake if you are not up to extra few miles of more difficult terrain. Jewel Lake is right next to the Mills Lake, so it’s no brainer to hit it before turning back. 

It was super windy there, but fresh snow and blue skies made it much more enjoyable.

I took this one somewhere maybe three quarters of the way to Mills Lake, while we were still protected by the trees. 

I’ll be posting a few short video clips to my Instagram, so follow me up there as well.
