Rocky Mountain National Park, Day 3

7 Sep

I’m doing a catch-up post here. Yesterday was actually a travel day, which ended with us in Utah. But I didn’t get to share what we did on day 3 at RMNP. So here goes, with little commentary because we need to roll.

Elk Sighting

 

Bear Lake

 

Shannon at Alberta Falls

 

Annelies at Alberta Falls

 

VERY Early Aspen Leaves

 

Hiking Down from Alberta Falls

Dream Lake Trail

We all gasped for air the entire way as we climbed from an elevation of 9,475 feet at the parking lot to over 10,000 feet at Dream Lake. That would be a strenuous climb at sea level, but at just under TWO miles high, it was REALLY a challenge. Our legs are still feeling it two days later.

But with this view as the reward at the end (we passed Nymph Lake along the way), it was well worth it.

Now we’re off to see some arches…

  1. Wow, gorgeous. (I’m glad you can post photos again!)

    My favorites are “Bear Lake”, love the symmetry of that one. Nymph Lake does look like a toad paradise.
