Several weeks ago, I decided to take some time to unplug, explore nature and document my journey with my camera in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. As a result of spending 4 days in nature and taking hundreds of pictures, I came back renewed and inspired to share my experiences. So join me and experience the serenity of nature through my photos and videos.
Brainard Lake Recreation Area
My first stop was Brainard Lake which sits at over 10,000 feet in elevation and there was still plenty of snow on the peaks and trails. Full from the spring snow melt, crystal clear alpine lakes sit below the Rocky Mountains and empty into South St. Vrain Creek.
Rocky Mountain National Park
My next stop was Rocky Mountain National Park. I stayed away from crowds by entering the park in the Falls River entrance around 5:30 am to be greeted by a beautiful elk strolling on Old Falls River Road with a gorgeous rainbow above!
The water cascading down Alluvial Fan was the highlight of my trip. The thrashing water flows swiftly through the boulders creating a sound you will only hear in nature.
Unplug to Recharge
As a gentle breeze filled the air, I sat down in Upper Beaver Meadows to watch the white puffy clouds float over the snow- peaks. For the next half hour or so, I relaxed and my mind was only focused on this magnificent moment in nature.
Almost everything will work after you unplug it for a while, then plug it back it, including yourself. There is no better place to recharge than nature. All you have to do is make the time to get outdoors to reboot!
Breathe in. Breathe out. Move on.
