My friend, former colleague (on an orchard…it’s a good story) and roommate in New Zealand Erik has been in town visiting from Sweden. He was up for an adventure, so we headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park this past weekend to do some hiking.
Here’s the trip report, as told by Instagram:
We hiked to 4 different lakes within the park, starting at the Bear Lake Trailhead.
We then headed to the Lumpy Ridge Trailhead to hike up to Gem Lake. We had good views along the way.
All in all, it was a great time. It’s pretty cool experiencing these familiar places with someone seeing them for the first time.
