Bear Lake – Rocky Mountain National Park
May 10, 2016 6:15 AM
OK, I did my homework and planned out great sites for photos at RMNP. Bear Lake is listed as a very popular site and there are many beautiful images showing reflections of the surrounding mountains in the sparkling water. We were all ready to take the short hike up there and observe a stunning Rocky Mountain sunrise.
As it turns out, the skies were cloudy and the lake was completely frozen and covered with snow. We passed a group of cross-country skiers on the way in and I found myself wishing for a pair of snowshoes as we tromped through the snow-covered trail. The scene was beautiful but certainly not what I was expecting! Guess we need to make plans to come back when its a bit warmer.
