A Foggy Morning in the Merry Month of May

Many Parks Curve on a Foggy Day in May

May is a wonderful month to visit Rocky Mountain National Park, but the weather can proove to be challenging.  The good news for spring travellers is that snow storms aren't as commom, but like anywhere, you can still be surprised!  This photo is from Many Parks Curve on a foggy May morning.  Down low in the Estes Valley the fog was amazingly thick, but the higher we drove, the more it broke.  We made it just in time for the sun to rise, lighting the top of that foggy layer and dusting the clouds with golden orange rays.  Just an hour later the foggy seas lifted, uncovering a glorious day!
