I made a quick trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park and Trail Ridge Road yesterday. While had little luck with ‘big’ wildlife, the smaller creatures provided plenty of opportunities. Among them was this cute, little Pika who took a brief break from gathering food to take in the rising sun.
There was definitely a feeling of fall in the air at 12,000 feet as temperatures were only in the mid-30s in the hour or so after the sun rose. I didn’t linger long as I had failed to bring appropriate gear for that kind of chill!
