What can I say!!!! Five stars! How can you even rate nature?! It's perfection! I'm a lover of nature and parks and can find no fault in what I love! Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park is beautiful and so pristine! I highly, highly, highly recommend you visit if you're in the area! My pictures do not do it justice! There are cabins, hiking paths, beautiful lakes and rivers and lots of deer! Unfortunately I didn't see any other living creatures besides birds and deer on this trip! Lol :) I'm happy not to run into bears though!

Did solo today, 2.8.19, 6.5 miles. Although experienced hiker, I made several mistakes. Wore spikes but needed snowshoes. Trail drifted over causing difficult to follow and lost trail several times adding time wasted back tracking. No one has been on the trail in some time. Overall not well marked. I went clockwise from East Portal. GPS helped when I had a cell signal. Reflective tags in trees only in the middle third of the trail. I wore spikes but needed snowshoes as I stepped into sudden deep snow pockets up past my knees. Fell five times. My fault. Had to run the last mile due to waning light. This is not the prettiest trail In RMNP so will likely not do again.

The rain started to head in, but we shifted plans a bit (the park is huge - one side can have rain while the other is sunny) and got to Alluvial Fan, Bear Lake, Nymph Lake and Dream Lake among some other spots. We also drove through most of the park and went to the Alpine Visitor Center - 11,796 feet up! It's the highest elevation Visitor Center in the park. Great views. Such a different feel - it was cold and there was snow on the ground. In July!
Rocky Mountain National Park is home to many species of animals, including nearly 70 mammals and almost 300 species of birds.

However, some species have been extirpated from the park, including the gray wolf, the wolverine, the grizzly bear, and the American bison.
