I wasn’t sure if I liked the part of the photograph of Longs Peak, the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, and the snowy mountains after the recent snow….or the animal tracks up the hill in the foreground.
What do you think?
Longs Peak, the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, still has quite a bit of snow on it. The view from Lily Lake was so pretty.
The ice has melted on the lake although there is still a bit of snow around the banks of the lake and on the shaded trails.
A great place for a walk with beautiful views!
This is one of my favorite spots at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park with Longs Peak and Keyboard of the Winds in the background.
The “Keyboard” got its name as the “Wind can be channeled by mountains and spires with a side benefit that unearthly noises as are often heard here at Keyboard of the Winds.”
Pretty spectacular, don’t you think? Have you ever sat on that bench?
Longs Peak, the highest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park at 14, 259 feet, got covered with snow during our recent snowfall.
Longs Peak is a climber’s dream…to be able to climb Longs Peak is a feat in itself. People leave in the middle of the night to be able to get up and down before dusk.
The window for climbing Longs Peak is usually around July 4th when most of the snow up top has melted to Aug. 15th when the snows might start again at such high locations. It will be very interesting to see when it is safe to climb Longs Peak this year. It seems to have an unusual amount of snow for this time in May.
Have you ever climbed Longs Peak?
