A day earlier this year showed the results of one of our wettest summers in years as Alberta Falls, in Rocky Mountain National Park was in full effect.

One of the best parts about living in Denver is the accessibility to the Rocky Mountains. The snow this year has been minimal, and with temperatures above normal, it has allowed me to get some mountain hiking in on the weekends. This is the falls below Sky Pond in the Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a semi- moderate hike to get to (by Rocky Mountain Standards) and has several scenic “pay-offs” along the way.

FYI: There is a person in this photo to give you a perspective of the size of this falls.
