Trail Ridge Road (III)

IMG_0989

The climb to the 12,183 ft (3713.38m) summit of Trail Ridge Road continued to give us some really impressive views.

And then it was a relatively quick descent back toward the timber line and Grand Lake on the other side of Rocky Mountain National Park. For reference, Grand Lake’s elevation is a mere 8,369 ft (2550.87m) and the elevation in Colorado Springs is (officially) 6,035ft (1839.1m).
