Winter Vista | Rocky Mountain National Park

It has been a hectic winter at the home front and I haven’t gotten out this year as much as I have wanted. I finally was able to get out to Rocky Mountain National Park with some friends and got out to do some snowshoeing before the snow disappears.  Luckily last week we got some snow here in Colorado. April actually is Colorado’s snowiest month. The ski areas this year have had a wonderful season and some are staying open longer than usual since they received so much snow this year.

We ventured up the back side of Nymph Lake and I captured this image looking out toward Continental Divide and the jagged edges of Powell Peak and McHenry’s Peak. I think I need to start getting out more. I was really winded this trip and before you know it Spring and Summer hiking season will be upon us.

Rocky Mountain National Park isn’t really crowded yet so the deer and the elk were out grazing without many worries of people being around. I’m sure that will change here in the next month or two. If you didn’t catch my deer crossing video this weekend, here’s a link to the video.

Have a great weekend!

    Beautiful scene Rick. I am a bit surprised that April is the snowiest month. Would never have guessed it.
