Hollowell Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Today (June 17, 2008) we did a day hike in the Hollowell Park area (eastern side) of Rocky Mountain National Park.

We also drove up to the highest point of highway 34 in the national park (12,000 feet) and down the western side to Grand Lake.

We were disappointed to see that the bark beetles have killed many pines on the western side of Trail Ridge. (And we hear they’re headed our way.)
