Nymph Lake Nestled Among Mountains
November 25, 2020
Nymph Lake is nestled in the Rocky Mountain National Park inside Colorado at an elevation over 9,000 feet. It is well worth the mostly uphill half mile walk from the Bear Lake Trailhead to experience the great views of Hallet and Longs Peaks from this alpine lake.

Rocky Mountain National Park includes some of the highest mountains in the continental United States. The top third of the park encompasses the alpine tundra, a windswept land above the trees. Landscapes on either side of the Continental Divide feature alpine lakes, forested valleys and a wide range of plants and animals. Iconic summer thunderstorms and persistent winter winds are among the forces that continue to shape this majestic landscape.
