Mount Kingston Peak trail begins only 1 hour outside of Denver, yet takes us far into Rocky Mountain alpine tundra. It’s a great adventure and full of beautiful photographic opportunities.
In mid-late summer the tundra fills with alpine flowers allowing us to work on floral closeup and macro images.
If you have the motivation to wake up early (really early) we can reach the top of the trail in time for sunrise breaking over the Eastern plains for a truly perfect morning light.
Willing to hike? A relatively short but tiring hike (due to the altitude and elevation change) will give us access to three lakes surrounded by lush vegetation and small cascades. An amazing oasis in what is usually a dry tundra landscape.
