Enough has already been said about this place. My take: just bring yourself there and take it in! Get up early, access through the Beaver Meadows entrance, leave the car at the Park and Ride, and take the shuttle all the way to Bear Lake ( the final stop of the line ). Once you get there, go and check... More

So many places to see. nature at its finest. From the top of the peaks to the bottom of a waterfall its simply beautiful. Wild life when you least expect it. And when you want to find it just ask a park ranger, they try to keep track where you can spot some elk or rams. Trails from easy to... More

I'm a private tour guide for RMNP, and it is truly my home away from home. I breath easier up in my mountains. Colorado is just so beautiful. There are so many wonders in the park. The Alluvial Fan, for instance. It came into existence due to a flood just over 30 years ago, and now just last year, there... More

Going to the Rocky Mountains, whether in a car, hiking, biking, whatever you choose is indescribable! You must see and realize it will be a spiritual experience! Possibly life changing! I've been to the Rockies in Colorado many times and it never gets old!

This is such a general attraction that I do not know how to explain it. From the national and state parks to all of the different small towns and vistas along the roads you cannot go wrong. Come to Colorado and check it out!

Busy on a Monday but so much to see. Saw a herd of elk and big horn sheep on the way up to the Alpine Visitor Center. Lots of trails to hike off the beaten path. Views that leave you breathless...literally.

Coming from Arizona, our first campsite was Hermosa Springs adjacent to Haviland Lake near Durango. Each spot is secluded. The host helped us by chopping wood and provided a map of nearby hikes. The hikes around the lake were short so we drove to find other trailheads. Next time we will buy the $4 hike book from the forest service.... More

If you love visiting National Park then this is one of those beautiful one! We went here in mid August which is basically peak summer in US and weather was cool at bottom. You definetely need light jacket when visiting this place due to cooler weather at higher alititude. Must do Trail Ridge road which starts from Estee Park entrance... More
