RMNP again

Our next day at Rocky mountain included a drive up the Old Falls Road and across the Ridge Road, over the tundra above tree line. it was spectacular scenery, and great fun to experience together. The vastness of God's creation was all around us, and moved us all!

Tim, Nikki and Dave climbed to the top of the world along a set of stairs near the Alpine Visitor's Center.

We also saw amazing creatures: many bull elk, in all their finery, pikas, ground squirrels and pocket gophers, tiny chipmunks and huge rabbits, yellow-bellied marmots, and various birds.

And at the end of the day, it was hobo dinners and fried pies over the camp fire. What a delicious end to a delicious day!
