Weekly Photo Challenge: Rocky Mountain Sunset

sunset in rocky mountain national parkAn evening ride over Trail Ridge Rd in Rocky Mt National Park allowed me to see the sun set again and again as the road went higher and we drove further west. It was an amazing ride and great adventure this past weekend!

Trail Ridge Road traditionally opens on Memorial Day weekend; last year the road opened on May 28. Trail Ridge Road is the highest continuous paved road in the United States, climbing to 12,183 feet and connecting the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake.

  3. You have perfectly captured the way that the cloud cover and mountains frame the brilliance of the blue skies and setting sun…simply stunning. Isn’t it amazing how pics taken from moving cars can often work out. Well done!
