After a couple of days rest from my Rocky Mountain National Park Adventure I was finally ready to resume my regular regimen of hiking and wildlife photography. However a rude surprise was awaiting me at my trailhead in the form of an earth mover the size of a house. My trail is closed and they are building a super highway to the summit of my mountain. I’ll probably never see wildlife there again 🙁 I don’t know why they can’t just leave some things alone.
As long as I was that far down the road I decided to go check on the leaves on the south
face of Pikes Peak. They are still a bit green but in the early light of a Rocky Mountain sunrise it was still a beautiful scene… Worth a few pictures anyway!
As always, these pictures and more are available for purchase on my website as wall art on glossy metal or acrylic sheets, stretched canvas and traditional framing and matting. Tons of cool gift, tech and household items are also available with a beautiful Rocky Mountain Image from S.W.Krull Imaging! Click to explore!
One thought on “Trail Closed”
That gorgeous gold spilling diagonally across the mountains. Lovely
(Noooo – not yet another road – and a big one? A scar like that – even if allowed, would be so difficult to heal across a neighborhood humans were not invited into – may all the animals flee to somewhere safe…only the somewheres seem to be getting fewer and fewer. For what?)
