"Springtime in Moraine"

Moraine Park, Rocky Mountain National Park

Spring in the Rockies can be magical especially on a year when there is an abundance of moisture. On this June morning, Moraine Park was alive. Golden banner and iris were flourishing in the moist meadow while elk grazed nearby. In the distance coyote were yelping as they played in the grass. At this time of year the mountains still wear a blanket of snow and the morning light made it all glow beautifully.
