We slept in cabins at a place owned by the Salvation Army and hiked in the Rocky Mountain National Park.
Our first day was meant to acclimatize us to the altitude. Here we are hiking along a 2.5 mile route.
We arrived here at Mills Lake and I celebrated Sunday Mass on a rock in the lake. It was a fantastic experience. The wind was gusting to 25 mph so I made some people stand behind me like a wind screen.
You can see in the picture above where the tree-line ends. Think of how much work God must have put into this part of the world, just so the elk could enjoy it.
