Late last year I had the opportunity to spend a week in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP). Strangely, I’d never actually been to RMNP although I’ve been just about everywhere else around RMNP.
The trip was part of a trip to nearby Denver for a conference so I didn’t get as much time to spend in the park and surrounding areas as I’d wanted to, but I did spend every morning in the park for sunrise – and loved every second that I had there. I’d had a few pre-planned locations found during trip research and got a couple of really good sunrise shots but didn’t get as many opportunity for Elk that I wanted. That said, I did get surprising access to multiple Moose during the trip as well as a few Pika.
Before we get into the trip photos, let me share the gear I used on the trip. If you want to know more about the gear, let me know and I can share my thoughts.
