We took a short 3 stop ride into Rocky Mountain National Park after the recent snow storm. This is a photograph of Bear Lake. It is an easy and wonderful hike during the winter months as it is a short, flat hike. I will be adding numerous other photographs of these 3 places during the winter. Hallet Peak and a bit of Flattop can be seen in all 3 photographs with snow rising off the top of Tyndall Glacier.
Sprague Lake is also a wonderful, short and flat hike in Rocky Mountain National Park. There is so much snow in RMNP at this time that you can snowshoe around Sprague Lake. Sadness does prevail as some of the wonderful trees that we remember are unfortunately not there any more due to the recent beetle kill of those trees.
Storm Pass is a place that most people drive by as it only has 3-4 parking spaces. It is a wonderful backcountry hike, but it is long and steep (not for the average hiker). But the beauty does show itself in the first 50 feet after you’ve parked your car.
