Photographer's Note

Wild Basin

Copeland Falls Trail - Wild Basin Area - Rocky Mountain National Park

Wild Basin is an area of Rocky Mountain National Park south of the main portion of the park. Every time I hike this area I think about how appropriate the name is. Often one finds oneself hiking through thick dark stands of lodge pole pine .. the wind rustling and creaking through the trees.
