After two days in the mile-high city, Dan and I decided to double our altitude and head to Rocky Mountain National Park . Since I took so many amazing photos, I’m writing several posts about RMNP. The high mountains are amazing, and the tundra is impressive, but the truly beautiful pictures will come later. The lower elevations had color and sunshine that we didn’t see at 2 miles above sea level.
Can you see my joy! REAL mountains after all the years in Arkansas and Indiana.
A bit cloudy, but what do you expect in tundra?
The high visitor center was still closed. Can’t imagine why.
Some bird nerds pointed out a ptarmigan to us. We were very lucky to see the camouflaged little brown and white bird. I would tell you to look for it in this pic, but I would be teasing you. It looks like a rock and I didn’t include the sad looking pic I took of it.
Dan + Mountains!
A close up of the differential erosion. The forces of nature make art too!
Dan with amazing rock formations in the background.
It was very cold up there, but we were pretty happy about it!
