Rocky Mountain National Park – 21-Mile Loop

God I love this place. Saturday was a day of solitude, a day of inner conversations, working things out, and praying about what’s next. I woke at 4:45 am. and immediately cursed myself for dreaming up such an idea. Just short of an hour later I was at the trailhead, basking in early morning light, cinching up my boots and starting the GPS track. The first three miles were the worst, and more than once I almost turned back to watch TV, read and relax. But alas I didn’t. Here are some shots from my beautifully long day hike, which took me up, over, around, and through everything Rocky Mountain National Park has to offer.

    Tim, I love the first shot, Early Morning Light on the Trail.

    What do I need to do to get a print of this?? 8 x 10 or larger?
