Rocky Mountain National Park

Quick Index:

Entry sign...
Rocky Mountain may not be my favorite park, but it is the park I've been to most often. That's probably because of its proximity to I-70 and Denver. In this park is the first time I got above 10,000 feet, if you don't count those pressurized cigar tubes that fly over at 35K. It also has two fantastic roads to drive.

This park is the definition of Purple Mountain Majesty, and even though the Rocky Mountains range from New Mexico to Canada, it seems fitting that the namesake's national park be located here. Colorado is home to 56 fourteeners, or mountains that reach a peak height of 14,000 feet or more. Just within the 415 square miles of park, there are 76 peaks that are 12,000 feet or higher.

Colorado River
Colo River Link The Colorado River starts as a small stream in Rocky Mountain National Park, and gathers hundreds of other streams and rivers along the way to become the lifeline of the Southwest, providing water, electricity and recreation to millions in the five states the river flows through or touches.

I've actually followed the river in one form or another, from Rocky Mountain National Park to Grand Canyon. I've also done more river miles on the Colorado than any other river...
