Rocky Mountain National Park- Part One


Rocky is the 3rd most visited national park in the United States. After my initial visit, I can see why. From soaring mountaintops, pristine lakes and abundant wildlife, Rocky Mountain National Park is why we set aside these amazing natural resources.

  1. It is beautiful. I spent weeks camping near it and visiting it , and riding horses to lakes near it. I’ve hiked there, too, as an adult.

  2. Stunning photos!

    As a kid, we camped in the nearby town for 3 weeks. I visited the park numerous times and rode horses over the hills to a local lake. I hiked there as an adult, too. I’ve driven back roads coming up to it from the south, and from the west of Boulder and a stunning drive from the hwy to Denver, from Vail, then turning north and following a scenic route through little towns. Such a beautiful area.

  4. You’ve captured the beauty of this, one of my favorite national parks, so well, but what amazes me are the animals you’ve seen so closely. Wow! I would love to be by your side while photographing!

  5. Once again … beautiful photos!!! I hadn’t been to RMNP in years because you can’t bring dogs. I recently did a mountaineering course that took me into the park. We climbed up the saddle to the right of Hallett Peak. I had forgotten just how beautiful the park is. This makes me want to go back even more. Glad you’re having such a beautiful trip to CO.
