Trekking the Rocky Mountain National Park!

16 Comments

After the day of camping at the Winding River Resort, we headed towards the Rocky Mountain National Park to explore the winding trails that led to breathtaking waterfalls, lakes and rivers. We started with the Adams Falls trail which was short steep uphill trail. We were very lucky to spot a Moose on our short way up the hilly terrain. The locals there told us that Moose is a really aggressive animal and very protective as a mother so all of us were very careful while watching the Moose enjoy in its natural habitat. We finally reached the Adam Falls which was beautiful and all worth the uphill hike.

After our hike, we relaxed and lounged by the magnificent Grand Lake which is the largest lake in Colorado at an elevation of 8000 feet. We geared up for our next trail after relishing the delicious Mexican lunch at the Grand Lake Downtown. Our next trail was full of wild yellow/white flowers and huge lush pine trees which led to the massive Colorado River flowing under the bridges. The weather was sunny and I enjoyed this trail the most.

We ended our day driving ten miles through the Rocky Mountains surrounded by alpine meadows, forests and creeks. By the end of the day we spotted about six Moose, ten Elks and so many deer and horses grazing grass in the lush meadows. It was so amazing to see the wildlife in the national park and not tied up in zoos. However one thing that we missed was the Mountain View from the Trail Ridge road which leads to the highest peaks of Rocky Mountain National park. It was closed due to the recent snow storm in Colorado and we had to make our way back after reaching up there. Have you recently hiked National Park. Which one is your favorite? I would love to know!

    • Oh wow, you are fortunate to live there in the midst of such natural beauty, how to adjust to the high altitude there? Me and my friends had a very hard time getting accustomed to the altitude.

      So happy to hear that we were one of the lucky ones to see so many Moose around. Thank you πŸ™‚

  4. Great post, and beautiful photos! I loved Rocky Mountain national park! The hiking and the mountains were beautiful. We saw a bear (from quite a distance) when we were there so I’m glad I was not camping!

    • Thank you Amanda. Bear, that is so awesome. We were told by the locals that there are small bears around but they are too shy to come out in the open, lucky you πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Oh! This is a lovely place and the way you have narrate it, you must had a great time trekking and traveling in glory of nature. Yes, seeing the animals in their free zone far from the zoo, is where you see their true nature and we enjoy seeing them cherish the space that belongs to them…
    That’s a lovely picture walking between the alpine trees…
