I’m thrilled with living in a vibrant, thriving city. But sometimes I need to see something wild.
A week spent in Rocky Mountain National Park cleared my head and provided endless moments of inspiration.
Historically, I’m not a camping kind of woman. But my husband really wanted to. And it seemed wrong not to camp a few days while in Colorado. So we did.
And it was fun! Except for the unexpected cold snap. We were prepared for temps in the low 50s, but it was close to 40 several nights. Since I regularly get shivers at any temp below 80, this made for a unique experience. And by unique, I mean frigid.
Despite my husband’s obvious attempt to freeze me to death, it was still awesome to experience the wilds of RMNP. We saw moose! Elk! Pika! Marmot! Even a Pine Marten (though he posed in the *perfect* spot to avoid a quality photo. Thanks Marty). While we didn’t feed any of the creatures, it was obvious that some of the ground squirrels expected it. I was sad to disappoint, but happy to exploit their adorable antics.
I took a couple thousand pictures, and look forward to posting EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. for you to enjoy. Or not… How dull. However, I’m still editing them and will most definitely continue sharing them as I find new photos to adore.
I may even post travel notes about where we stayed,etc. Or I can just post pictures. It doesn’t really matter where you stay, as long as you go to Rocky Mountain NP, be a responsible nature appreciator and stand in appropriate and total awe at the beauty of our world.
