The shaded canyon wall of Glacial Creek provides a colorful backdrop for a lone conifer tree. This small canyon is just downstream from Alberta Falls (9400 feet elevation) in Rocky Mountain National Park.
The canyon trail delights one's senses. Echos of roaring cascades reverberate among the rocks. The warbling song of a Ruby Crowned Kinglet sparkles through the air with its trilling melodies, and sun rays warm pine and fir needles, liberating their alpine aromas.
