Dream Lake is located in the shadow of Long’s Peak (in the distance in this photo) in Rocky Mountain National Park. This lake is a few miles away, and about 2,000 feet above, the visitor parking center but well worth the journey. The mountain water is crystal clear and filled with rainbow trout. I shot this in mid-afternoon in late September on a Nikon D7000.
Grabbed this photo in mid-afternoon in October at Rocky Mountain National Park from the trail to Bierstadt Lake. The trail climbs nearly 2,000 feet from the road to a high mountain lake.
Rocky Mountain National Park’s Trail Ridge Road climbs well above the timber line to offer spectacular views of the Colorado Rockies. This photo was taken at a stopping point near the Alpine Visitor’s Center.
