COLORADO – ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK – Bear Lake
Photo Experience: From the Bear Lake parking lot, walk the 250-or-so feet to the trail that loops around the lake. I suggest going to the right. Several shoreline spots along this portion of the trail will provide excellent vantage points from which to shoot Hallett Peak and its reflection. Plan to arrive a few minutes before sunrise on a clear, calm day for the optimal choices of places to set up and of the best photo opportunities.
Other Info: An admission fee, or appropriate federal pass, is required for entrance into the park. Pit toilets are available at the trailhead. Nearest motel accommodations are in Estes Park.
