Peaks of RMNP


The peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park.
I arrived on what was really a rather clear but windy day in RMNP. The fall color was gone. There were clouds clinging to the peaks and that drew my interest.

There was a foreboding to the wind and the clouds among the high peaks. Something that made them exceptionally wild that day.

I can only imagine the conditions for any alpinist that had dared the high country. The wind and the chill in the air had to make it a very difficult ascent. Despite my desire to walk among the high peaks,

I stayed in the low valleys and walked, photographed, and occasionally thought just maybe.....
