Gone to See America 2008: Wintertime in Rocky Mountain National Park.

One of the benefits when I was working part-time (two weeks a month) in Boulder, Colorado was that Rocky Mountain National Park was only an hour drive. I got to see and take pictures in the park during all four seasons. A winter storm was approaching, so I only spent a few hours in the park.

Rocky Mountain National Park: Winter Visit

I miss not working part-time in Boulder, Colorado. While there I was able to visit Rocky Mountain National Park all seasons of the year. As long as the roads were clear, it was only an hour drive from Boulder to the park. Some of these images were published ten-years ago, and some are new. All have been reprocessed using newer software.

Ten-Years Ago (28-May-2007) — Colorado

I was about to leave for a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park and saw this brown bird with spots outside the Residence Inn where I was staying in Boulder. I got a couple of pictures, but didn’t know what it was at the time. I finally figured out that it was a Norther Flicker. A woodpecker that feeds on the ground. I then went for a hike in the Longs Peak section of Rocky Mountain National Park. A few images — a squirrel, a small white wildflower, and a purple crocus wildflower. Many more images for another day.

I went for a hike on the Wild Basin Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park. Lots of wildflowers, and this stupid bumblebee that liked my carbon fiber tripod.
