- Rocky Mountain National ParkNov 14, 2013
Rocky Mountain National Park is truly a gem--gorgeous mountain vistas, rushing rivers and clear mountain lakes, wild flowers, meadows, and forests and of course, wildlife like elk and big horn sheep. It kind of feels like you've stepped straight into a National Geographic documentary. No joke--it's that's awe-inspiring.
The other huge plus about the park is that it's accessible to all sorts of visitors--from back country hikers to Sunday drivers; there pretty much is something for everyone. In terms of lodging, there are five drive-in campsites (and hundreds of back country sites) though if heat and electricity is more your style, there are lots of options in nearby Estes Park and Grand Lake.

Rocky Mountain National Park is the first place I ever saw elk or big horn sheep. It was the first place that I ever hiked over 10,000 feet. Each year my wife and I buy a National Park Interagency Pass just so that we can visit as often as we want. This summer we plan on camping out at least a few times.

Gorgeous scenery is all around you at this national park west of Denver and north of ski country. Go in summer, when the park's high-altitude road is open, letting you drive between the west side where wildlife abounds and the east side, which has chains of lakes for hiking and backpacking. If you've got a 4WD vehicle with high clearance, take the Old Fall River Rd for a backcountry adventure and sky-high views of glacial snow and river valleys.

You really get a high mountain atmosphere from this park even though it is not that high as mountains go. However, the landscapes are desolate and harsh, and the weather changes quickly making it a very sketchy place to be trekking at times.
