The Wild Embracing Silence

Emerald Lake in Bear Lake Basin of Rocky Mountain National Park is a unique place to enjoy the splendor of the Milky Way.
In August, the Milky Way rises at four in the morning in the gap between the 3877 m (12.720 ft) high Hallet Peak on the left and the 3756 m (12.324 ft) high Flattop Mountain on the right.
A night out under the Milky Way at Emerald Lake is such an emotional experience and so far away from our everyday world that the perspective for the essential becomes obvious and apparent again. Our planet is such a unique and enchanting place in the depths of the universe and home to all of us. Such a night teaches deep respect and awe, and implements the sustained desire to rethink.
