This is the third and final installment of photos from our Rocky Mountain National Park vacation. This is the one my friends will enjoy the most, and my fellow bloggers could care less about.
On our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, we saw an amazing number of wildlife. The elk were everywhere, and the chipmunks were so cute and tame! I’ve wanted to see a moose for some time now, so when we ran into a group of pedestrians with cameras alongside the road, I was ecstatic to see a moose grazing in a field. We encountered a few mule deer, a snowshoe hare, and squirrels, too.
We visited Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, but I just finished editing photos today. I can’t fit my favorites into one blog post, so I’m splitting it into three. I’ve skied in Colorado many times, but this is the first time in my adult life that I’ve visited in the summer. I was blown away by how pretty it is. This is a place I could never tire of.
To answer Saturday’s question about what landmark we visited in Colorado … it was Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Although the nice weather brought out crowds of people, I enjoyed the short hikes and the lack of that overwhelming feeling that comes with visiting a large National Park and barely having time to scratch the surface of it.
To answer yesterday’s question, the photo was taken at Glacier National Park. Here’s another one of my favorite photos of GNP – bear grass along the Grinnell Glacier hike. See my blog post about our Glacier National Park vacation last year.
I couldn’t think of a more fitting photo to celebrate Earth Day than from one of the most beautiful places on earth – Glacier National Park.
