Things to See in Colorado: Rocky Mountain National Park



A view of Hallett Peak (12,713 ft) from Dream Lake.  You can find this view by taking the trail from Bear Lake to Emerald Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Along the way you’ll come across Dream Lake and will have excellent views of Hallett Peak as well as Flattop Mountain (12,324 ft) which is just to the right of the frame of this photo.  It’s about a 1.8 mile hike from Bear Lake to Emerald Lake and is a nicely groomed trail.  A nice hike for the whole family!

Rocky Mountain National Park is a scenic destination for locals and tourists.  It is about 1 hour from Longmont, Colorado and about 1.5 hours from downtown Denver.
