Rocky Mountain National Park — September 6, 2009
It’s the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. We’re expecting there to be quite a lot of people on the trails today, so we pick one that, hopefully won’t be so crowded that we’ll be unable to get a parking lot. While there are shuttle buses for hikers, we’d prefer to be able to park and hike.
We get to the trail-head and the parking lot is full — no room for even a small car like ours. Fortunately, there’s another small parking back up the road a little ways and there was an empty spot there when we went past. Hopefully, no one has slipped into it — good, it’s still open.
Here’s a few photos from the hike:
