The hike from Bear Lake to Nymph Lake, Dream Lake and Emerald Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park is always spectacular…especially in the winter! The skies are so blue and the snow is so pretty.
Many people hike or snowshoe this trail in the winter. Others who are very adventuresome, will put their skins on their downhill skis and ski up to Emerald Lake and then ski down.
On the way to Dream Lake from Nymph Lake the trail narrows considerably so you need to go single file. We were lucky that the trail was fairly packed down when we passed by. It was a gorgeous day when Phil took this photograph!
