Rocky Mountain National Park Snowshoeing

We returned from our trip, Rocky Mountain National Park Snowshoeing, on Saturday, February 23 2019.

It was a blustery day but the sun was out and there was plenty of snow for our romp in Rocky Mountain National Park. Camp robbers visited during lunch, much to the delight of the kids, and, though the day was chilly, everyone reported having a good time. On the way home we stopped by the area where we might have fished had the weather been a bit more cooperative. We did see many fish but were glad to have chosen snowshoeing over casting in the wind.

A cold snap will likely make for good snowshoeing, so we'll likely skip the fishing (unless conditions are better than forecasted). Anyone over 16 years of age will need a fishing license to fish, but fishing is not required.
