    Rocky Mountain National Park

    This President's day we headed West and spent a whole day in Rocky Mountain National Park!

    It was three of us; me, my Dad and my elder brother. Dad, who had spent all his life in military and is as fit as a fiddle was leading the way. Brother, who had spent many weeks on the tough terrains of Pakistan's north was right behind ... while I was trying to keep up ... as usual.

    Anyway, my camera didn't last very long as it was really low on battery but the few snaps I did take, came out pretty good.

    I hope you guys like it too.

    The one above is right in the beginning when we entered the park.

    The one above and below I took while driving through the park, so the quality isn't great. We kinda wanted to room around and find a good trail to hike.

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    The following is of the few mountain tops that are about 12-13000 feet. And yes a few trails go that high.

    Just another beautiful view ... right at the bottom of trail. You can probably see a few roof tops of the cars parked there. Even in freezing temps there were quiet a few people present.

    This portrait I took while actually on the trail. You can imagine my partners whom I was trying to keep up with went way ahead ... but I did finally made it to 'em. :-P The frozen ground upfront is actually Bear Lake ...

      The rockies. *sigh* Ok, so I believe you that you're close to the rockies.

      Really nice pics! (But I bet they'd have been better if I'd taken them.)

      p.s. How cold was it?

          Thanks for sharing Ahmadjee.

          Never been there, but this is certainly my kind of a place.

          Colorado, Oregon, and Washington state are my favorite places in the US.

            I guess I've been there. That'd be in the US, right?
            Beautiful place though.
