|Sky Pond, Rocky Mountain National Park - Prints available|
This past weekend we did a "warm up" hike to Sky Pond in Rocky Mountain National Park. This has got to be one of the best hikes in the whole Estes Park area. The lake sits at the base of rugged spires known as the Sharkstooth and 13,000 ft. Taylor Peak. In early June, there was plenty of snow to cross with an exciting scramble up a waterfall to reach this high glacial lake. Marmots and other critters weren't afraid of people up here. One even walked right up to our feet! A good day with great friends and a "manhandler" at Smokin' Daves for lunch is always a worthy prize for such a workout.
