Hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park

by Kay~Kacey on 9/21/2012

We just got back from a very brief trip to Estes Park. Love it out there. While out there we took a short hike to Emerald Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. Such fun. The trails winds by three lakes.

Nymph Lake

Nymph Lake Rocky Mountain National Park

It was just gorgeous with all the lilies floating in the lake.

My sister and brother-in-law and my niece went with SuperGuy and I on the hike. I think they are all a bit tired of the bazillion times I stopped to take photos… This next one ┬áis Dream Lake. (I think…my sister has me so confused on the order of the lakes on this hike…)

This one is either looking down on Nymph Lake or Dream Lake (once again, blame my sister…)

It was perfect weather, and a not very long hike. My sister, brother-in-law, and niece are hard core hikers, so this was more of a stroll for them. My sister commented on how weird/strange/nice it was to actually stop and enjoy the views on a hike… :hysterical:

Emerald Lake

Emerald Lake…well, you can see where it got its name. Such a beautiful color. After reaching Emerald Lake…some of the hikers had to take a brief nap in the sun…

Not to disappoint…of course I got a pointing photo. Oh…and a glamour shot of my sister… ;)

My sister, my brother-in-law, my niece and I all went to Cheley Camp in Estes Park when we were kids. So Estes holds a special place for all of us. We had a fabulous time, and I’m ready to go back right now. Seriously! I need to go to the mountains every so often to recharge my soul.

It is NOT my fault they decided to switch the names of those lakes… and add that extra waterfall by Skypond! And wow, I am glamorous!

What gorgeous scenes! I love these. And your sister looks like a hiking fashionista.
