High Altitude Hiking RMNP | Colorado Day 2

Thumbnail for High Altitude Hike

High altitude hiking in colorado is quite a challenge... especially when 24 hours ago you were at sea level. Our hike to Emerald Lake which tops out only at 10,110 ft (3081 m) but had some spectacular views. (Quick tip if you are doing this hike get up early as the park/trail fills up quickly so get there before 0800 AM as the parking lot was full by 10am in winter/spring) .After a quick afternoon nap we headed back in to the park for sunset and golden hour to hopefully see some wildlife.
