Today was a wonderful hiking day in the Bear Lake area of Rocky. We started at the Bear Lake trail head and hiked to Emerald lake. Intermediate stops were nymph lake and Dream Lake. We also did a loop hike around Bear Lake. The hike to Emerald lake was 4 miles round trip with about 1,000 ft of elevation gain. The elevation at Emerald was a little over see10,000 ft. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. Pictures are good ,but don’t show full impact of the area. Tonight we are going into town for pizza and beer and then a tour of the Stanley Hotel. Tomorrow we are hiking to Cub Lake. See you tomorrow.
