Notes: This is the third of the missing cards.  It is a linen card with a scalloped border, and it shows Bear Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.  The lake was created by glaciers during the ice age, and it sits at and elevation of 9,450 feet (2,880 m).  The mountain in the background is Longs Peak, which was named in honor of explorer Stephen Harriman Long.  It is 14,259 ft. (4,346 m) tall, making it the tallest peak in Rocky Mountain National Park, but still only the 13th tallest peak in Colorado.
