Ring Around the Rockies

Do you have any fun summer road trips planned? We went on a road trip loop around Rocky Mountain National Park, through river plains, wildfire burn, and snowy mountain tops. Plenty of critters came out to say hello. Some kept their distance, while others came up for a closer look, ready for their moment to shine.

We ended the day on the sunny docks of Grand Lake, where we watched the small boats bob by in the warm breeze. The sparkling water and sunshine were a serene way to end the day.

Grand Lake was full of sunshine and smiles.

    That Colorado River photo is amazing – excellent layers and good job leading the eye through the photo.
