Established on January 26, 1915, Rocky Mountain National Park is a living showcase of the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. With elevations ranging from 8,000 feet in the wet, grassy valleys to 14,259 feet at the weather-ravaged top of Long’s Peak, the park offers countless breathtaking experiences and adventures.
The Rockies were unbelievable! We saw the mountains in the late afternoon, then camped on the West side overnight. Then back up at 4:30AM to catch the sunrise. The freezing cold and near frostbite were worth it – it was gorgeous. Plus we got to see some of the rare bighorn sheep.
