Nymph Lake Rain:

Nymph Lake - Rocky Mountain National Park

Nymph Lake is one of a wonderful series of lakes one finds on the Bear Lake trail system. It is a small little gem only 0.5 miles from the trail head.

A sad (or wonderful depending on the day) truth about Rocky Mountain National Park is that in the Spring and Summer months one has roughly a 99.9999% chance of being caught out hiking in a thunderstorm if you are on the trails after the noon hour.

On this day Andrew and I had been another half mile up above on Dream Lake and had overstayed our welcome a bit ... and were hurrying back down to our car trying to keep ahead of the thunderstorm.

The mountain looming in the fog on the left is Longs Peak (elevation 14,259 ft - 4345 meters) the centerpiece of the park.
