This Dreamy Duskywing butterfly was so pretty in Rocky Mountain National Park last summer.

It’s not a colorful butterfly, but so pretty in its own coloring.

Have you ever seen one?

We were the first ones out on the trail to Cub Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park after the new snow a few days ago.

It was such a treat. Quiet and solitude. We didn’t see anyone else until we were almost down again.

Someone made this snowman along the trail at Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.

It had a cute face, but I loved the sun shining from the back, looking out to the lake. What do you think?

We Needed Hiking Sticks On Cub Lake Trail In RMNP After The Snow

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!

Pearly Everlasting Wildflower In RMNP Last Summer

I think the Pearly Everlasting wildflower is one of the prettiest of the wildflowers in Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. When it starts to bud, it looks just like a shiny, white pearl. And then as it blossoms, the petals come out and it looks like a bouquet of pretty, little, delicate white wildflowers.

Have you ever seen a Pearly Everlasting wildflower?

The weather was gorgeous at Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park and so beautiful for this time of the year. The trails were snow-covered and the fences lined the beginning of the hike at the bridge.

Doesn’t get much prettier, do you think?

The sun was perfect at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park as we gazed at Longs Peak and the Keyboard of the Winds in the distance.

It was about 65 degrees and absolutely gorgeous.

I just love the tranquility in this photograph. What do you think?

Mountain Death Camas Wildflowers On The Tundra In RMNP

I have only seen Mountain Death Camas wildflowers twice in Rocky Mountain National Park and both times up on the tundra.

I looked up on the internet why they are called Mountain Death Camas and it is because they are poisonous to both humans and wildlife, thus their name. Guess I’ll stay away from them!
