This is Mount Chapin, Rocky Mountain National Park, as it looked yesterday morning. Luckily, Estes Park, Colo., photographer Erik Stensland was there to capture the scene. He posted this on his Facebook page, but you can also find his work at his gallery, Images of RMNP.

Chapin is the southernmost of three peaks often hiked in one trip. The route across Mt. Chapin, Mt. Chiquita, and Ypsilon Mountain is commonly referred to as “CCY.”

From left to right, Chapin (12,454 ft), Chiquita (13,069 ft), and Ypsilon (13,514 ft):
