I snapped it while hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. The specific location is the Onahu Creek Trail on the western side of the park. I was on a solo back country hike, and this was a meadow (and one of the few level sections) along the trail at about 9,000’.
I camped at about 9,650'. During the night a bear thrashed around down by the creek just through the stand of trees behind the tent in the photo on the right. (I knew it was a bear because I’d seen his tracks at the creekside earlier, and again in the morning--and because nothing else acts like that.) Needless to say, I didn’t sleep much that night.
Trips like this one provided some great background material for various scenes in Where the Wind Blew.
