Featured Story
Climb Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.
Rocky Mountain National Park is the “Peak” of your Colorado Vacation

One of the greatest joys you can ever hope to have, in Colorado or anywhere in the world is driving over Trail Ridge Road and looking over the highest mountains in America. All sorts of natural wonders are in Rocky Mountain National Park, from beautiful lakes and streams to wildlife to wildflowers. The park measures 415 square miles. Visitors to the park can look forward to wildlife like deer and elk, as well as rabbits, marmots and a variety of birds.

In the last several decades, much work has been done to keep the location pure and natural. Even former president Richard Nixon of all people recommended that 239,835 acres of the park be designated “wilderness”, which would prohibit any “modern” expansion of the beautiful area. In recent years, Congress has allotted more land to the park area. There are six visitors center in the park. These include the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, the Kawuneeche Visitor Center, the Moraine Museum, Fall River Visitors Center, the Alpine Visitor Center and the Lily Lake Visitor Center.

Visitors are urged not to feed the wildlife, as it makes them less capable of surviving this natural wilderness on their own. However, guests can sightsee, and can also take part in various physical activities. Bicycling is popular in the park and you can see tourists biking down established roads all year round. Camping ground is available too, though it is controlled. There is no electricity, water or any other modern conveniences.

Other activities at the park include climbing (the famous 900-foot Diamond Cliff is a favorite), fishing in the mountain streams and park lakes, hiking and backpacking and driving through the roads of the park. Horseback riding activities and skiing also take place in certain months of the year.

About three million visitors come to the park each year. Be one of them the next time you drive out to Colorado!
