“After all, a vacation is not a matter of place or time. We can take a wonderful vacation in spirit, even though we are obliged to stay at home, if we will only drop our burdens from our minds for a while. But no amount of travel will give us rest and recreation if we carry our work and worries with us.”
– Laura Ingalls Wilder, essay September 1919

Near the Sheep Lake trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park Old Fall River Road crosses a bridge that goes over The Roaring River. The Roaring River creates a nice leading line into the Mummy Range of mountains in the distance. I’ve driven by this area a number of times but never noticed it. This time I was forced to stop though in a gawkers delay as the meadow (just out of frame to the left of this picture) was filled with elk and thus a line of cars was stopped taking pictures of them. As I sat in my car waiting for an opportunity to go around them I noticed this view. Seeing as I had time I got out of my car set up my camera and took a few pictures before heading back to my hotel for the night.
