For my friends bachelor party, three of us headed out to Colorado to spend 4 days in Rocky Mountain National Park. We arrived on Wednesday July 2 and wanted to hike the Ouzel Lake Trail and spend our first night in the backcountry. Mother nature had different plans for us because when we arrived at the backcountry office we were told there there was between 3-6 feet of snow at our campsite. We decided not to risk camping in the snow and ended up hiking 5 miles out to Finch Lake to spend our first night inside of RMNP.
