In Rocky Mountain National Park the vistas are everywhere, and unending. Above, azure blue is permanently etched with craggy peaks extending notched, key-like protrusions into a perfect sky. Below, grassy meadows dotted with wildflowers spread an intricate quilt pattern. Deep canyons plunge into velvet green forests far below. Rivers rush down the mountainside to rest in still pools before the long journey to the sea begins again.
This is Rocky Mountain National Park, a spectacular wilderness that has been protected for millions to see and enjoy every year.
It is a national park to be experienced, and one of only a handful that is maintained in as near a totally natural state as possible (commercial activity inside park boundaries is extremely limited), while keeping it accessible to all.
Traveling in our Motorhome we can even go to the Backroads entrance and enter at the Grand Lake entrance that is off the beaten path of the normal tourist. Take a look at these photos in the park.
Come, experience this priceless jewel, Rocky Mountain National Park! Catch the glint of Rocky's many facets: the brief morning alpenglow on a peak, a glimpse of a wary wild creature in the brush, the glitter of sunshine in a stream, the grandeur of a mountain sunset, the solitude of a trail less traveled, the splendor of the starscape free of man-made light, the exhilaration of the view over the clouds, the uplift of birdsong from the branches or the haunting night music of bugling elk.
Ancient upheavals, volcanic eruptions and glacial scouring cut and carved great diversity and incredible beauty into this multi-faceted gem, Rocky Mountain National Park, fittingly set midst Roosevelt and Arapaho National Forests and Colorado State Forest.
The altitude from 7,500 to 14,259 feet slices through montane, sub-alpine and alpine zones. A drive up Trail Ridge Road takes you to the Arctic Circle ecologically; yet you're only 2 hours from Denver.
The Continental Divide splits the Park into east and west sides. Less than an hour's drive from I25 or I70, Rocky is open and accessible year-round, 24 x 7, but winter snow closes US 34 over the Divide.
Come, see for yourself why people have visited here for 12,000 years!
