The Loch - Rocky Mountain National Park

I believe the Loch is my favorite place in Rocky Mountain National Park. It sits at an elevation of 10,140 ft. (3,090 meters) below a dramatic "cathedral" wall ... It is more than I can fit in the frame .. I need to get back up here and work on some panoramic stitching.

The Loch is a gorgeous 3 mile walk from the Glacier gorge trail head .. with some "add insult to injury" steep switch backs as you ascend the Loch Vale ...

When I was a graduate student this was one of my favorite haunts .. it has become an unfortunately far rarer visit now .. I took a wonderful day this summer after the kids were all back in school and I was still out and snuck up here .. wonderful peaceful place.
