"Pine Family"

Flattop Mountain, Rocky Mountain National Park

I came across this family photo while hiking on Flattop Mtn. during a snowstorm. I think it almost looks like a mother, father and their children. I love being out in snowstorms as it is usually one of the most peaceful times in the Rockies. There is usually no wind and every sound is muffled creating an almost solemn stillness. Note, that I did crop out a few things around the edges as I was waste deep in snow and unable to get the angle I wanted to eliminate the distracting edges. I didn't do anything to change the trees you see. This is exactly how they were.
