2013 – Rocky Mountain National Park – Part 2b

The second half of the day was a mixture of a roadside geology tour and a lets stop here for a few photos.  So, let me start by first showing some of the photos we took at random locations

Our first stop is for a Picnic near Sprague Lake with Hallett Peak in the distance
