Mike, I assume you started out somewhere between Rock Cut and Forest

RMNP. Any better description of the starting point?


Your start at the Rock Cut parking lot. Take the paved hiking path to the
end and go around the rocks on the left to where the snow starts.

If you go, you must post pics.

Hi Mike:

Thanx for the response. I won't be in RMNP until July 22 or
thereabouts, so don't plan on taking skiis. I am planning my 19th
climb up Long's Peak for my summer RMNP adventure, but if I get up on
Trail Ridge Rd I will stop at Rock Cut and see what you guys did. I
enjoyed your pix. What kind of a camera do you use? I have a Sony
2.8 mpixel camera I was given in Tokyo a couple of years ago when I
spoke to the Japanese equivalent of Underwriters Labs (UL). It takes
great pictures, but I don't take too many skiing pictures because the
easy skiing I do does not lend itself to very dramatic pictures like
the ones you posted.

Cool! The normal hiking route to the top looked like it had plenty of snow
on the west-facing rock-alley portion near the top and probably not
passable (I forget what that section is called). If you are taking a
climbing route, you are probably OK, though. The only time I have hiked it
was mumble-mumble years ago when they still had the cables.

.. but if I get up on
Trail Ridge Rd I will stop at Rock Cut and see what you guys did. ...


It is probably best viewed from Fall River Road if that is on your tour.
You get a good sense of the steepness and from near the top of Fall River,
you can get a good overall look.

I enjoyed your pix. What kind of a camera do you use?


Thanks. I used my 6MP Nikon D100 DSLR for those shots. I also often use a 2
MP Nikon Coolpix 775 if I want to go lighter (e.g. mountain biking)

I have a Sony
2.8 mpixel camera I was given in Tokyo a couple of years ago ...


I have had plenty of luck with my 2 MP cameras but the D-100 is more suited
for the task.
