Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most popular National Parks in the entire system. It’s pretty easy to see why. Straddling the Continental Divide and located a few hours north of Denver, Colorado by car, the pristine and unique beauty it offers is something to behold.
At over 250,000 acres to explore, you’d have to keep coming back year after year to be able to take it all in. Since the acreage runs over the Continental Divide, the line that separates the watersheds of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, it features a very different landscape from one side of the park to the next.
On the East side, the park is drier with more glaciers, and on the west side it is heavily forested and lush. It’s almost like having the ability to see two parks at once!
There are a number of attractions at Rocky Mountain National Park that keeps almost 3.5 million visitors a year entertained. Let’s take a look at what the park has to offer.
Forget Las Vegas. When you’ve had enough of the glitz and glam, head to Great Basin National Park to get away from it all. With a range of awe-inspiring scenery, including mountains, desert, and deep caves, there’s no shortage of excitement despite its distance from Sin City.
