This is an untitled photograph from Erik Stensland’s Facebook page. Stensland is a professional photographer based in Estes Park, Colorado, and his photos of Rocky Mountain National Park are favorites of mine.
In order not to contribute to a concentration of visitors, Stensland does not reveal his vantage points. However, based on my experience, this appears to have been taken along the Toll Memorial Trail on Trail Ridge Road, areas that are already heavily trafficked in the summer. The trail is an out-and-back paved walkway above 12,000 feet. With Trail Ridge Road closed in winter, Stensland probably had to ski up to this location. I’m glad he did.
