During our recent trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, one day was quite cold and rainy so we were not able to hike in the afternoon. So we drove around and I found this lovely area in Horseshoe Park with a steam coming off Falls River. Hopped out of the car to snap this photo and got back in before the rain picked up. May try again with a more natural color scheme. I was drawn today to the triad of lime green, red orange and blue violet.

We hiked to Emerald Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park a week ago.  Was gorgeous though we had to rush back. Enjoyed blue skies when were arrived but then we heard thunder. Dark clouds and cool winds suddenly came rushing in. We hiked quickly back a couple of miles in some sprinkling rain, then it poured the last 100 yards. I took 400 pics on our trip to Estes Park/RMNP.
