Our friends, Paul and Rhonda, came for a visit and we decided to take a ride up to Rocky Mountain National Park and walked around Sprague Lake. Monday was a beautiful day for a ride and a short hike with blue skies and white puffy clouds. We enjoyed a fun couple of days and look forward to their return to Colorado.

A little history about Sprague Lake…

Abney Sprague homesteaded in the area more that a century ago, around 1874, and created a trout pond by damming a stream. This pond is known today as Sprague lake.

Sprague Lake offers magnificent views of some of the highest peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park. As you walk around the lake and gaze up toward these peaks you are looking at part of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, which extends from the Canadian border in Montana, through Rocky Mountain National Park, to the border of Mexico.

Rocky Mountain National Park is breathtaking with 12,000 foot mountain peaks, 300 miles of hiking trails, gorgeous wildflowers, abundant wildlife and much more. I took many photos on Monday and will be posting some in the next few days.
