Backpacking in RMNP

Last Sunday through Tuesday I took a buddy of mine backpacking in Rocky Mountain National Park in the Wild Basin area. We only hiked in a bout a mile and a half to our campsite and did some day hiking from there. It had been rainy in Colorado for about 5 days prior to our trip, and Sunday was no different…not a brutal thunderstorm but a slow, deliberate, steady stream of drizzel that would occasionally stop to get our hopes up, and continue on again.

The plus side to all of this rain is that the rivers where very high, which made the three waterfalls near us especially big this late in the summer. We passed Copeland Falls on the way to our campsite and hiked to Calypso Cascades and Ouzel Falls in the rain on Sunday and in the sun on Monday. There’s a bunch of pictures here from the trip, including some where I pretended to be a photographer. Hope you all are doing well, things have been great here!
