Rocky Mountain National Park
Not long after we started climbing to the pass, we reached the top of a wide, flat pass and the boundary of the Rocky Mountain National Park. The open meadow of the pass was covered with flowers. On the other side of the pass, we first looked at the sweeping views into the Park, with its rugged Mummy Range. After descending through a lovely landscape of ponds, flowers and snowfields, we made a short climb to the top of Mummy Pass. There, we stood in front of an enormous stretch of open country with snowy mountains in the distance. With binoculars, we watched young elk frolick on a snow field.
