Snow Camping at Loch Vale

Geoff Isaak and I headed for the Glacier Gorge Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park in hopes of camping at Sky Pond.  When we reached Loch Vale we were in near white-out conditions with blowing snow so we set up camp here.  I got up at 4:30 the next morning in hopes of making Sky Pond for sunrise pictures but after following a trail in the snow for over an hour I ended up in a deep snow drift so made it back to Loch Vale just in time for this sunrise.  The wind was blowing so hard across the lake against me it was all I could do to hold the tripod still.  View more Colorado photos at http://www.marblejones.com/p459698259
