1st trip
Back in the west at Rocky Mountain National Park. The first day of hiking was around Bear Lake, to Loch Lake (The Loch), Lake of Glass, Haiyaha Lake, Dream Lake and return to Bear Lake. Beautiful scenery all along these trails and the Aspen were at Peak color change. There were plenty of others along the trail but not overcrowded. The higher elevation made the hiking a little more difficult but not bad since we were only around 10,000 feet. The weather was ideal and very little snow on the surrounding peaks except on north slopes. Looks like a late arrival for winter this year.

The trails were in good condition as usual in a park that has heavy usage. The trail from the Loch to Glass Lake was a little rockier with a lot of rock steps that made this section a little harder than the rest. I could spend another day or two in this area to hit some of the other trails near Bear Lake. At the time we went the park required reservations to enter the park, this supposedly ends on October 10.
