Trail Ridge Road Cruise

Trail Ridge Road

Trial Ridge Road opened a bit later this year as a result of the late spring snows. But once opened the views were as spectacular as always. While I did not do the whole length this trip, I did spend some time exploring Lake Granby and Monarch Lakes just outside of the park. Definitely added to my list of places to camp, sooner rather than later.

Once into RMNP, the elk were out and enjoying the afternoon sun. It amazed my the number of tourists that closely approached them for a good picture. And the marmots were out at the top, and largely ignored.
