while in colorado, we spent a full day exploring around rocky mountain national park. we drove up after breakfast and entered the park just as the sun was coming out. there was still snow covering the ground from the recent snowstorm which only made this place more breathtaking. we were hoping to drive up to trail ridge road but it was still closed for the season. instead, we parked and walked a mile or so until i freaked out about being out there alone. we stopped ten different times. we hiked through snow covered woods. we soaked up the sunshine. and drove around until we found a herd of elk enjoying lunch and figured it was a good time to pull over and enjoy our lunch too. it's been a dream of ours to visit the rocky mountains for years and it was everything and more. i hope we get back there soon.
