Rocky Mountain National Park was established in 1915, and is one of the most popular national parks in America. In 2016 alone, 4,517,585 people visited the park. Visitors are drawn in by the mountains, the tundra, and the wildlife. This national park offers exceptional hiking, backpacking and camping trails that lead you to lakes, waterfalls and mountain summits.
Even just driving through the park is spectacular, taking you over 12,000 feet in elevation and giving you views of the Rockies unlike any I’ve ever seen before. Here are some of my favorite pictures from my time spent in this beautiful park, and hopefully they will inspire you to make the trip to see these mountains for yourself.
