Fall River Basin
a photograph

Looking down from the Alpine Visitors' Center along Trail Ridge Road, one can see several different ecological niches, from tundra, through alpine meadow, pine forest, to riverine bottom all within a mile or so. These are deer browsing along the edge of the pond, with some elk cows grazing nearby in the bushes. Taken in late afternoon, probably around 4:30.
