Photographer's Note

Alluvial Fan Falls - Rocky Mountain National Park.

I got this shot today despite my bad cold. We didn't go on a hike just kind of bumbled along the road side and climbed up into these falls.

I had planned on coming here this afternoon because the weather report was dreary .. great time for slow exposures ... but of course the weather forecast was wrong .. and so Andrew and I sat here waiting upon each cloud to take a few shots ..

In 1982 this area was the site of the Lawn Lake flood when an old dam up in the mountains burst. 3 people were killed and there was $31 million in damage.

The vegetation is just starting to return .. the area is covered with large dead trees and 3 and 4 feet tall baby trees.
