How was the Bark Beetle damage..,? When I was through there a few years ago it was ugly.., Love RMNP..,

 

Bark beetle infestations happen about every 35-40 years.  All the dead trees they leave behind are just fuel for fire season.  Fortunately, fire season has been pretty tame this year.  Nothing like around 2010-2012 with the High Park Fire, and the Waldo Canyon Fire.  I think those rank as the two most destructive fires in Colorado history.

Just ran through the checklist....we've been to 25 of the 59 National Parks. I think RMNP is in top 5 so far.

Stayed at the haunted inn again last night.

 

I was dozing off, half way between asleep and awake, when my girlfriend started calling out my name. I didn't know if she was talking in her sleep, having back spasms or what. She said something was tapping her on her back. Then I felt the covers on the bed get tighter, and it felt like someone got in bed between us.

 

Kinda freaky.

Me and my family do a lot of backpacking in Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. It's like RMNP only without all the people.

Agree on up fall river road and back down trail ridge road though. It's a pretty spectacular drive.

Agree about the people. I don't like people when I'm trying to enjoy the outdoors. My son and I have done a lot a of backpacking in AZ.  But now my knees sound like two bags of broken glass so my backpack was getting lighter & lighter to the point where I'm pretty much just carrying my camera now.
