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.
