The summer of 2009 was a good year for me. I managed to get out and visit some of the more distant locations in Rocky Mountain National Park. This is what I love best, seeing areas that few people have had the chance to visit. I love to explore and be surprised by what I find. I also find that I can be constrained when visiting locations I've either been to before or which I've seen photographed before as it can limit my ability to see with fresh eyes.
