Moraine Park and the Cub Lake Trail are two of our favorite places to hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. Even if we just have an hour or so, we can go into the park and take a short hike or just take a drive around looking for wildlife, wildflowers or anything that looks interesting. As I was walking back across Moraine Park after I had just witnessed the impact of the fire in Moraine Park, Philip took my picture as I looked down at the scorched earth. Even though the grass was burned, you can still see all of the beauty in the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Cub Lake area as the sun broke through the smoke. We will be hiking in this area again.

As we drove out of Moraine Park, we could see the fire engines in the foreground and the background with the ever so beautiful Mummy Range in the distance. The Fern Lake Fire has not marred the beauty of this mountain paradise.

I took this photograph last Sunday when the town of Estes Park was full of smoke and it was hard to see as the Fern Lake Fire was still so fresh. And yet when I got home and the sun was starting to set over Rocky Mountain National Park, you could still see all of the beauty of a mountain sunset with the fire clouds in the sky.

    Nice. As saying goes -“if you’re lucky enough to be in the mountains, you’re lucky enough.”

    I’m so glad you said this. Having been newly introduced to your blog, which is wonderful, I was looking at the photos thinking, in spite of the destruction and loss, there is a beauty to Nature in all it’s forms including death. The mountains continue to soar up to the sky, while the sun radiates over the landscape. It’s a constant which is comforting.
    God bless those who suffered any loss in this fire.

    What a beautifully touching coda to this tragedy together with your eloquent expression of love, respect and admiration for the awesome beauty of this glorious, noble and majestic mountain country. All of this accompanied by superb photography so expressive of the mood with which you celebrate it.
