Cub Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park

While beautiful with rings of lilly pads, this photo of Cub Lake demonstrates the effects of global warming on Rocky Mountain National Park. On both sides you can see the dying trees that are present throughout the region. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona and Democratic Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado toured the park while we were visiting, and we're briefed on the topic.
