Lake Irene in Rocky Mountain National Park 1

Rocky Mountain National Park

Lake Irene on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park is an easy stroll from the parking lot on Trail Ridge Road. It is nestled in between two small ridges and is a gem in the high country. Pictured here in the early morning, clouds appear blurry thanks to a long exposure. While this is a pretty landscape, bring the mosquito spray - those pesky insects can come at you in waves at this location. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
