Happy Labor Day!

In CategoryPhotos, Travels

Yesterday we had a picnic and spent the day in Rocky Mountain National Park.  The weather was cool and crisp … just perfect for enjoying a waterfall at Alluvial Fan, and hiking around four different lakes.

Our first lake was Bear Lake which included an easy 3/4 mile walk around the entire lake. The photo on the right was taken at Dream Lake, which was one of the most gorgeous settings I’ve ever seen. It was a mile or so beyond Bear Lake and we were able to enjoy the lily padded Nymph Lake along the way. The hike to Dream Lake was moderately challenging, but very much worth the effort. There is another lake 3/4 of a mile beyond Dream which we hope to hike to in the next few weeks.

Unfortunately there were hundreds and hundreds of other people who were up in the Park enjoying the last part of summer too. Our final stop of the day was at Sprague Lake, where it was a leisurely walk around a crystal clear lake. There was a wedding taking place on the the dock, and of course I just had to take a photo of the ceremony. I just love candid photos of weddings, as evidenced by all my Italian wedding photos last year.

As you can see, some of the aspen trees are starting to change color, as evidenced in the warm, yellow glow, as the sun started to go down.

My favorite season is almost upon us. Until then, happy dreamin’!

    That was a lot of fun. Too bad for all the Foreign tourists who had no trail etiquette. Colors and Bull Elk will rule in a couple of weeks. 🙂

    I had such a blast! I can’t believe that we fit in so many lake hikes in one day. The Bull Elk may rule soon, but we ruled that day! XO

    Beautiful, why we live in Colorado.
