Tomorrow, Rocky Mountain National Park [RMNP] begins celebrating its 100th anniversary. I am going to enjoy a hike to Mills Lake with family and relatives! I can not think of a better way to enjoy the first day of the celebration! Hopefully, I will find something to photograph.
I am guessing that RMNP will be busy. The forecast is for good weather. There will be festivities at Hidden Valley from 1:00 p.m. until 3 p.m..
Not to mention that Estes Park hosts plenty of events for folks to enjoy. Last weekend was the Heritage Festival. This coming weekend, the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highlands Festival will be taking place.
In years past, I would attend most of these events. However, in recent years, I have shied away from the crowds. It is mostly due to the been-there-done-that mentality. I am more than likely going to skip this, again.
In my last post, I mentioned some photo projects to work on. I thought of a couple more projects to add to my list of to-dos. The first is hiking to waterfalls within RMNP. I have become a fan of slow shutter speeds, and want to see how many waterfalls I can photograph with silky water. The second photo opportunity involves a trip to Yellowstone. I have always wanted to see wolves in the wild. Yellowstone is a park I have already visited, but I never saw wolves. There are also plenty of other wildlife and landscape opportunities there.
I will have to look at the calendar, pick some dates and get to work on these!
