It was a gorgeous morning to get out and take some photographs of the new snow. I especially love to photograph Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is only about a 2 minute drive from our home and so spectacular!

These are the rocks where Tommy Caldwell, who recently climbed the Dawn Wall at El Capitan in Yosemite, first learned to climb. Very impressive! Estes Park is so proud of him!!

babysheepsnowfoodThis little Bighorn Sheep baby was so cute digging for food in our yard after the recent snow. I took this photograph of him looking out of our window.

Adorable little guy, don’t you think?

I wasn’t sure if I liked the part of the photograph of Longs Peak, the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, and the snowy mountains after the recent snow….or the animal tracks up the hill in the foreground.

What do you think?

This was such a cool photograph of the Bighorn Sheep eating the grass under the snow, as I looked out our beveled window on our front door. There were so many of them!

What do you think?

Old Fall River Road in Rocky Mountain National Park is closed for the winter, and has been closed since the flood in September of 2013, but will re-open next summer.

It is a winding, one-way up 9 mile dirt road that lands you at the top of Trail Ridge Road by the Alpine Visitor’s Center. It’s definitely worth the drive, but not for the faint of heart!

We walked from the picnic area by the Alluvial Fan down to the entrance, which you can see. I couldn’t decide which one I like better…the black and white photograph or the color one. What do you think?

We hiked up to Cub Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park the other day on the spur of the moment. We figured we’d go as far as we could and then we’d turn around, depending on how deep the snow was or how slippery it got on the trail.

It was a gorgeous hike up, as we were the first to break trail that particular day after it had snowed a few inches. The going up was fine but coming down it was a bit slippery in places. So we picked up two sticks on the side of the trail and used them as hiking sticks. What a difference that made! That extra “leg” makes all the difference in the world.

When we got down to the flat meadows again, we put them on the side of the trail for someone else in need.

It was a great hike and I am so glad we decided to hike all the way up to Cub Lake. It was just gorgeous!
