A Summer Morning in Colorado by kkart A Summer Morning in Colorado by kkart
The Kawuneeche Valley in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park is a unique place, unlike other areas of the park, areas of which are covered in marshland...an area I don't really shoot very often as I usually concentrate more on the Estes Park (east) side of the park. It was quiet when John
( *Glitch-Chaos ) and I were shooting down here. The light had a nice glow about it...one thing that I love about this side of the park--it is Moose country. It is just a beautiful area and one I look forward to getting back and visiting again soon.

I hope you all like it
John

Absolutely beautiful! I have lived in Colorado all my life. Have yet to see a moose, so I appreciate knowing about this! Thanks!

if you want to see Moose get to Brainard Lake, it's one of the best spots to see them [link]

A little slow on getting back to you on this tip about Moose on Brainard Lake. I very much appreciate it and regret to be so slow to tell you so. :( I am retiring from my job with Safeway next summer, after 25 years, and look forward to discovering Brainard Lake and a lot, lot more of Colorado and other beautiful places. Merry Christmas to you, too, John!

excellent. The EXIF data says this was taken just after 10 AM, is that accurate? Kinda hard to take photos with soft light in Colorado that late in the day. I haven't been to that part of the park in at least two years if not longer
