FERN LAKE IN ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

 In Hiking

Yesterday, I started my way to Fern lake, in the Rocky Mountain National Park, enjoying an amazing forest-bathing experience.

Now the trail goes up but remains in the shade thanks to a superb forest of evergreens. The quietness is suddenly interrupted by the crashing sound of a giant waterfall sending mist on the trail, which feels delightful. I am back hiking up a few switchbacks before the trail flattens for about ten minutes. I can see more sky through the trees. When I come to a small ridge, Fern lake appears, completely surrounded by trees, themselves towered by peaks. I slowly walk around the lake and find this spot. I am alone and truly enjoying that moment. Time has stopped.

Soon, some hikers and fishermen come but this moment has been worth my early rise.
