Camping / Hiking

Rocky Mountains National Park, Colorado

After leaving Grand Teton National Park, we drove 500 miles to Boulder Colorado where R’s sister lives. We spent a week with her family and they took us to Rocky Mountains National Park on the last day of our visit.

グランドティートンの絶景に後髪を引かれながら向かった先はコロラド州。ここでは1週間ほどR氏の妹の家でお世話になり、最終日に日帰りでロッキー山脈国立公園へ。

It’s already July but we encountered a hail storm in the park. We drove through hail, heavy rain, strong wind and lightening but it was all fun! We had a great opportunity to see a herd of Elk on a hill and a couple of huge male elk chilling on the grass. We were lucky to see wildlife so close!!

この日はもう7月だというのに、大粒の雹が降っていて、強風や雷雨にも見舞われる悪天候。ハイキングはできなかったけれど、嵐の合間に公園内に生息するエルクの群れに遭遇できたのは嬉しかった。

カリフォルニアを出発して、現在までの走行距離は約4,000km。移動日は1日平均750km運転しているけれど今のところ快適だし順調です!

We have driven about 2,500 miles so far and taking I-70 to the east coast. Our Subaru Impreza has been performing well!
