Alpine Lake

The Alpine ecosystem begins around 11,000 feet. At that altitude, trees do not grow. At that altitude, snow from the prior winter remains, even in August. The melt from that snow cascades down the mountain and forms lakes. The road through the alpine tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park is the highest in any National Park. The close up experience to such an unforgiving terrain is unlike any other.
