Rocky Mountain National Park in Spring

This Spring my mom came out to Colorado for the first time to visit me. So of course I took her to Rocky Mountain National Park, with a stop in Nederland and Estes Park. Trail Ridge Road was still closed through RMNP, and there was still so much snow here since we’ve had such a snowy winter and spring. But the scenery was amazing and since I live in Lakewood now and don’t get up to RMNP as much as I used to, I really enjoyed it. Here are some pictures from the drive up to RMNP.

My mom got my this alpaca wool hat in Estes Park - I love it!

There is a lake behind me somewhere under all this snow

Pussy Willows - they reminds me of Poland

A real cowboy in Estes Park? I guess all this shopping got him tired

Nice pictures, was the bird trying to make a snow angel? ;-)
I love the reflection picture with the almost symmetrical view of the mountains. I also bought an Alpaca hat for my daughter in Sisters, Oregon, she loved it :-)
