There are so many scenic outlooks in the Rocky Mountain National Park that it would seem impossible to pick out the best spot. However, the Alpine Visitors Center clearly (pun intended) is the best. It is only 11,796 feet in altitude and has a restaurant and gift shop. Being located at the halfway point to Grand Lake it is a good place to eat and use the restroom facilities. The visitor center view is world class. We were going to go to Grand Lake, but by accident found out that an old friend was working at the Moraine Park Visitor Center, and turned around to go surprise him.
