Rocky Mountain National Park

.Rocky Mountain National Park.

Better late than never right, well that is what I am telling myself. We were in Rocky Mountain National Park over a month and a half ago, but I am just getting to this blog post! We spent 1 1/2 days in Rocky Mountain National Park. After we left, we realized that we should have spent a lot more time there. It was absolutely gorgeous & there is so much to see  and do. Whether you are an avid hiker or just want to walk a little bit, there is plenty for everyone to see. 

^^Heading out of Estes Park & into Rocky Mountain National Park^^

^^Rocky Mountain National Park is so incredibly beautiful.^^

^^Love this man, so thankful we took this adventure together & shared it as a family!^^

^^The Alluvial Fan was beautiful. The water falls were created from the Lawn Lake flood that happened many years ago. We hiked up the rocks and through a wooded area that we later realized was not for hiking. oops!^^

^^Our first day through the park was a rainy & foggy day. We noticed right away upon entering the park that more animals were out & about during the rain.^^

^^This elk hung out on the side of the road, I jumped out of the car quick to take her picture & she didn't even move^^

^^Moraine Park views of the mountains^^

^^Top photo taken at Bear Lake, this was a gorgeous lake that we hiked to in the park. Bottom photo taken at Moraine Park.   Incredible views!^^

^^The kids enjoyed running the grass and letting some energy out after being in the car for a long period of time! I loved taking pictures with my camera of the beautiful wild flowers.^^

We can't wait to go back to Rocky Mountain National Park when the kids are a little bit older & we can hike further into the park. We are so lucky to have such amazing National Parks in the United States, we hope to explore many more!
