200 Miles to Fern Lake

Our first “big” hike in Rocky Mountain National Park was accessible directly from the campground – Fern and Cub Lakes. It was pretty crowded on the trail – including three groups of kids.

When we got to Cub Lake and sat on a rock to take a rest, the ducks, squirrels, and birds all came by to see if we would feed them! This guy was inches from my foot:

Cub Lake was pretty but not as pretty as Fern Lake:

There were several guys fishing and the Lake was generally crowded so we didn’t stick around for long.

The streams are just too beautiful in the Park.

We practically tripped over these grouse on the way back in:

The big news on this hike was that we hit the 200 mile mark!!

Miles Hiked: 11.5
Total Miles Hiked: 200
