It has been raining so much here in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park that I wasn’t surprised to see this beautiful double rainbow over Old Man Mountain the other day.
Pretty, don’t you think?
When we got up yesterday morning there was about 5″ of new snow on the ground We shoveled and then drove into town to get a bite to eat.
I decided to walk home as it was so pretty and quiet outside. I love the solitude early in the morning when no one is around.
I loved this photograph of the bridge over Fall River along the Riverwalk in downtown Estes Park. You can see Old Man Mountain in the distance.
And then about 11:00…it started snowing again. It snowed all day and all night!
I hiked up behind our home here in Estes Park on Saturday where it is Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a gorgeous day, warm and sunny.
I turned around and took this photograph from the trail looking out at old Man Mountain in the distance and Wonderview Avenue way to the left.
Beautiful, don’t you think? What view!
I thought it would be appropriate to post that gorgeous sunrise that we had a day after that horrific flood in Estes Park, RMNP and surrounding towns in Colorado last year on September 12, 2013.
Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park have come a long way since that tragic day.
Mother Nature brings tragedy and then brilliance, but she controls it all. This sunrise was a glimpse of hope for everyone.
