Weekend in the "Park"

We spent a leisurely weekend camping at our nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. We spent a lot of time in the rain, but lucked out and got several hours of great weather on Saturday to hike around a little. It had snowed above 10,000 ft Friday night. Below we are hiking at about 9500 ft. Pretty great for Kassidy who just had her lower wisdom teeth out on Monday. She is a trooper. Alberta Falls
Beautiful wild elk herd

Fresh snow
Bear Lake
Meanwhile our home got 2.5 inches of rain in 2 days.
