In the heart of Rocky Mountain National Park, the glacial Tyndall Gorge is home to three incredibly beautiful alpine lakes, each surrounded by increasingly impressive views of Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain rising dramatically in the distance.
Hiking Sky Pond to shoot sunrise was one of my goals this summer and the gorge is even more impressive than I expected.
My experience in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness in Colorado is unfortunately really limited and based pretty much around Maroon Lake and the Maroon Bells.
Even though it’s nestled up against the Gore Range and just over the ridge to the south of Piney Lake outside of Vail, the views at Lost Lake just aren’t as grand or iconic.
Peekaboo and Spooky were absolutely awesome, but as we finished up and were ready to start the short climb back to the cars, we once again found ourselves at the opening of this narrow canyon.
Almost immediately upon entering Spooky Gulch Slot Canyon, the walls close in and the light gets low – It’s known as one of the thinnest, darkest, and therefore “spookiest” slot canyons in Utah.
Requiring a short 15-foot scramble to enter, Peekaboo Gulch Slot Canyon is usually the first of the bunch to be tackled where you’re immediately greeted with an teardrop-shaped double arch.
