Beauty Along The Way


 
BetterPhoto.com All Time Best Photo Contest Editor's Pick BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner   Beauty Along The Way
Beauty Along The Way
It is so grand to find beauty while hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. Our destination was Black Lake, a strenuous 10 mile round trip excursion gaining 1,430’ in elevation and had it not been for my stubbornness to continue when my old bones wanted to stop and turn around I would have missed this glorious scene. Nature did her best to reward my tenacity to finish what I started.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

  Thank you both Monnie and Bojan. I had to reduce the size and was so hoping that it wouldn't lose too much; can tell there is a bit lost but still gives the viewer some of RNMP's splendor.
