Rebirth of a Park by Jacob-Routzahn Rebirth of a Park by Jacob-Routzahn
Another early morning headed to capture sunrise shots in Rocky Mountain National Park almost ended in failure.

On our way up, we noticed quite a few coppers flying by us with their cherries lit up. Upon arriving in Estes, a thick haze of smoke covered the city. Figuring there was a forest fire nearby, we continued on our way to the South Entrance, but admittance was quickly denied by Officer guide you away with his flashlight. So, being the geniuses that we are, Ryan and I decided to check out the North Entrance. Of course, no one was there as we slipped in and headed to Bear Lake Rd.

While heading to our rendezvous, we could already see that the road to it was fully engulfed in flames. So, since the hike to Lake Helene was out of the picture, we decided on a different vantage point where we could setup and capture early morning shots of the fire.

That was, until we were finally kicked out by the Park Rangers. All in all, the short time we were there allowed us to capture unique photographs that few others will ever experience.

This is an absolutely breathtaking photograph. I'm honestly sitting here in awe, probably looking like an idiot with her mouth hanging open.

At the same time, it saddens me. The Fern Lake fire has been burning for months and just keeps reminding me of the absolutely horrid summer we have had here in CO. I feel like it's never going to be over at this point.

Anyway. This is amazing - bravo on capturing such a beautiful yet dangerous part of nature.

Thank you very much! Yeah, the fire does suck, but it is needed. However, we do need some rain bad. Or snow.
