We are back to rainy day here in the front range, but yesterday was spectacular in the high country.
I made to the Emerald Lake overlook, which you can see right below, with couple folks (that little dot right in the middle of the lake) who just came down from the slopes above.
You might be able to spot Mills Lake to the upper left and of course the star of this show is Longs Peak, peaking out from the clouds.
On my way to Lake Haiyaha (second photo) you have no choice but to see this view at Dream Lake. It was a bit moody this morning.
At Lake Haiyaha I was blessed with about one minute of sun, so took that self portrait.
The third photo was taken about one hour after the first, snow started to fall a bit more heavy and by the time I got back to the parking lot, it was full on winter snow fall.

Snow is coming
A few days ago in the RMNP, as I was coming back to the trail head, I was admiring all this natural beauty, I reminded myself that it might be a nice moment to share with the rest of the world.
There was no wind in this part of the trail, snow still intact on the lower trees, nice peaceful place.
Place that you want to see on every winter hike.
Fresh snow day in the front range (just a few days back). A nice spot to see both Boulder and Longs Peak. You would think that Longs Peak is just seating above Boulder, but you can’t see it from Boulder… as soon as you go down into the valley, those front range hills block it entirely.
First snow in Boulder does not disappoint!
