Notchtop Mountain Sunrise

Notchtop Mountain is located in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. To shoot this mountain from this lake, we need to hike approximately 3 miles from trail head. We started hiking at around 2:20 am and hoped to reach this location before sunrise for moon set photo. Unfortunately the trail was still covered by huge amount of snow. It was not only difficult to find the trail, but also difficult to walk on deep snow without snowshoes. After 3 hrs struggling in the dark, we finally arrived at the frozen lake. We missed moon set, but luckily we did not missed this beautiful sunrise.
