Default Recent Colorado trip

Correct mesquite archer. A lot of them were shot in that park. It's gorgeous out there. Sadly it was one of the only areas open since they were still expecting snow. Whole trip was unforgettable. Not to mention it started out by us getting hit by golf ball size hail.

My wife and I love RMNP and the town of Estes Park. They are clearing the snow on Trail Ridge road this time of year and usually have it ready to open for Memorial weekend. If this was your first visit I'm sure you're already talking about going back. When you do shoot for sometime after Memorial because the drive through the park across the continental divide on Trail Ridge Rd is amazing.

Speaking of hail we have had some crazy weather driving that stretch of 287 in SE Colorado in to Limon and from Limon in to Denver. One trip we could see thunderstorms in the area but the road was clear and dry. Up ahead it looked like snow in the fields and crossing the road when we got there it was hail stones piled up about 12-18" deep! Cars were stuck, high centered and we were glad to be in a truck with a little lift for the ground clearance. This was about a 5 mile wide band crossing the highway, most hail I have ever seen at one time.

Yes, the water is a little high in June because it is their spring and there is a lot of snow melt. It is very fishable but be prepared for high water. Mid to late July the water is much lower and the holes are easier to spot.

I highly recommend booking a trip with a guide from Kirk's Fly Shop his guys know their stuff and they will put you on the fish. I usually book with them on a Monday and then take what I learn from them and fish the rest of the week.

Went through RMNP this past September for the first time. We drove the Trail Ridge rd all the way out the other side of the park and it was pretty cool. The day after we were there it actually snowed enough that they had to close the road for the majority of that day!
