Morning at Bear Lake

This photo was taken at Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. The park has gotten extremely popular in recent years, with a 42% increase in visitors in the last 6 years. While it is great that so many people are out enjoying the park, it means that the park gets busy. Very busy. Parking lots in the park being completely full busy. We avoided this issue by started our hikes early every morning, before the crowds of people arrived. On this morning, we arrived at Bear Lake on the first shuttle, then did the 10 mile hike to Fern Lake, before taking the shuttle back. The park is popular for good reason, the views along this hike, and basically every other hike we did, were amazing.
