All those dead trees are a result of the Mountain Pine Beetle.

"There are 17 native species of bark beetles in the family Dendroctonus and Ips that are known to occur in RMNP. Periodic outbreaks of native bark beetles have occurred throughout the history of the park. However, none have been as severe as the recent outbreak. Though bark beetles cause a substantial loss of trees, they are recognized as part of “natural conditions.” Several species of bark beetles are presently killing lodgepole pine, ponderosa pine, limber pine, Engelmann spruce, subalpine fir and Colorado blue spruce."
