Upper Beaver Meadows

Upper Beaver Meadows - Rocky Mountain National Park.

Just down the road from my previous post .. and six months earlier ..

Posted this one just because I am thinking of Spring (I know it is an August shot .. but at least it looks like Spring).

Any visitor to Rocky Mountain National Park should note the weather .. the forecast .. which is pretty much the same from May to September .. A beautiful morning and an afternoon thunderstorm .. It is important to take this account on any hike .. It is not pleasant to be caught on a barren mountainside in the thunderstorm ...

Upper Beaver Meadows is a quiet area in the park accessed by a bumpy dirt road with wonderful peak views on all sides and several quiet picnic areas .. A few hiking trails pass through here .. but they are longer less frequented trails. The last time I was hiking in this area there were a number of signs up warning the hiker of heavy mountain lion activity.

Again the big mountain is Longs Peak the signature mountain of Rocky Mountain National Park at 14,259 ft - 4345 meters.
