*Tuesday, August 2 – Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP)
On Tuesday we jumped in the car and started driving on Trail Ridge Road, which is the highest continuous highway in the country. It has more than 8 miles about 11,000 feet, and a highest point of 12,183. Close to the top of the road is the Alpine Visitor Center, which is where I took this. We stopped at the Alpine Visitor Center after our hike on the way back to the campsite today. The afternoon storms were beginning to roll in, so the clouds were absolutely amazing. I decided one picture wasn’t enough to capture how stunning it was, so this is a stitch of six images.
I’m not really sure what the trail on the left is, but I imagine it would be an amazing hike.
I finally managed to get out to the Red River Gorge! I had been wanting to go pretty much since it warmed up this spring, and just never had time or anyone to go with. Well today I decided to make time, and I needed some time to clear my head, and so going alone was absolutely perfect. It was such a great day out there, and I didn’t have to deal with many other people on my hike.
This image was really more of an experiment than anything else, and it just happened to turn out decent. Technically speaking it really isn’t great at all, but, I am just in love with it. It is about 25 images stitched together in photoshop with a slight boost of contrast.
