With Rocky Mountain National Park closed, Phil and I found this view of Longs Peak in RMNP with the gorgeous aspen trees from a road in Estes Park.
I think it is just spectacular, what do you think?
It’s hard to believe there’s a winter storm warning for Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. It has been so warm this past week with daytime temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
I walked home from town yesterday without a jacket and saw so many wildflowers starting to bloom again. It felt like August outside.
Here’s a photograph of a Yellow Salsify and a Blue Flax blooming beside the road.
So far only a dusting of snow. Wonder what the day will bring? Maybe the storm went by us…
The Alberta Falls and the trail off of Glacier Gorge Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park are spectacular this time of year.
I took this photograph a few days ago and the Aspens had not all changed color, so this might be almost peak time.
I wrote this Blog a couple of days ago before all the National Parks closed…so I am being optimistic in hoping that the parks will open again before all the aspens reach their peak colors!
