Experience remote ruggedness, Alpine Lakes, and impressive forests in this seldom visited range in Rocky Mountain National Park, the Mummy Range. Get away from the crowds and experience pristine wilderness where you might not see anyone but your hiking mates for days! This challenging section of the Rockies showcases beautiful alpine lakes, meadows, lodgepole pine forests, and epic views. We climb to about 11,400 feet and hike both on and off trail. If you want to do the same, be sure to hire a guide unless you are an experienced backcountry hiker! The journey begins in Estes Park, followed by a hike in the broad river valley before climbing ever higher elevations across the Tundra fields of the high Mummy Range. You'll see snowcapped mountains and, on a clear night, the Milky Way! It's not uncommon to see a large herd of elk and sometimes moose. If you've been yearning to witness true wilderness, consider trekking the Mummy Range! Click Here for the Show Notes: Love the show?
