LET IT SNOW








july 16th, 2016...we drove from estes park to grand lake....beautiful drive and lots of snow still up on the mountains.....one thing i did notice on this drive and on our hike is just how much dead trees there are in the forest....i'd say at least 80% was dead.....really a shame....mostly due to the bark beatle I believe....in the 2 pics you can see a lot of nike riders....we didn't know "ride the rockies" was happening on this day....they were riding on day 4 of the ride...from grand lake to estes park......i felt for them because at this point they were about a 1/2 mile or so from the top, it was cold and they had a strong head wind....but then it was all down hill for them to estes park.
