Summer Camping in Rocky Mountain National Park — August 2018

My Aunt Blazey lives in Colorado. In August of 2018 we all went camping in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Rocky Mountain National Park is near Estes Park in Colorado.

We camped overnight in the Moraine Park camp ground, and roasted hot dogs over the fire for dinner.

Clearly, I am thrilled about all this:

It gets darker in Rocky Mountain national park than it gets in most cities — there is very little light pollution.
