Moose Spotting Makes for a Memerable Morning Hike Around Sprague Lake

We just got back from a Memorial Day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. Our final hike was a quick half mile loop around picturesque Sprague Lake. Our toddler loves this popular hike because she can do it herself.

There are plenty of bridges to run over and rocks to climb on.

There are benches to rest on and great places to take family photos (if you can get everyone to look at the camera).

Oh wait!? Is that a moose in the background?

Yep! Much to our surprise a moose waded into the crisp mountain lake.

No matter how many times we go, we can’t wait to come back!
