This is my first blog post ever! My family trail name is FireMan (explained later and by this photo).
Here are some of the things I like most about camping in Rocky Mountain National Park with my family.
- The mornings in the park were nice and cool and the coffee was warm
- We could see Long's Peak from our campsite
- There were no bugs!
- I got to light the fires, which is where I got my name FireMan
- It never really got hot, the temperature was awesome
- The hiking was a ton of fun
- The nights were extremely peaceful because there were no bugs chirping, like the crickets back home
- I got to help cook breakfast (see picture below)
We did two hikes on our campout. I enjoyed the hike up to Dream Lake. It was really steep, but we got to play in the snow. My hands froze digging in the snow. After a while, they started burning.
I really liked the hike up to cub lake. It was a 5 mile roundtrip. The views at cub lake were great. We could see water, trees, mountains and a ton of animals. We got to play on the rocks and had a snack by the lake.
I would love to go back to RMNP, possibly for a backpacking trip.
