Bierstadt Lake Photos Rocky Mountain National Park: Photographs of Bierstadt Lake at sunrise. A light layer of fog and mist can be seen floating above the waters of Bierstadt Lake on this crisp Autumn morning. Snow capped Taylor Peak, Otis Peak, Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain can be seen reflecting upon the lake. All types of wildlife are known to frequent the lake and its shores. We witnessed a large Bull Moose slowly stroll by as he was foraging upon grasses surrounding the lake. These sunrise photos of Bierstadt Lake were taken on September 29th around 7:20am.
