RMNP "Big Boy"


About as big as an elk gets - and that is BIG!

RMNP - Bear Lake

Bear Lake - Hallett Peak 1_edited-2001.jpg

This is a very popular & easily accessible spot. Hallett Peak is up 3238' from here - to 12,713'. We have hiked to this summit 3 times - do I need to say "spectacular views"?

RMNP - Longs Peak


This is telephoto shot from RV site. We have hiked to the first notch coming down the right side of the peak - known as "The Keyhole" - it is at about 12,000'. Once you pass thru it the trail is narrow shelf / ridge with long dropoffs. We chose not to do it!
