Rocky Mountain National Park

Moose in the park last spring

We visited Rocky Mountain National Park twice in the past year. Last May we stayed in Granby and spent a couple of days exploring the south end of the park. Trail Ridge was still closed and snow-covered. It snowed several days while we were there but we saw moose and totally enjoyed the mountain experience.

Grand Lake just south of the park
A couple of weeks ago we spent an afternoon driving through Estes Park and Big Thompson Canyon and on into the other end of the park. Again Trail Ridge was closed and the snow-clad mountains glistened in the sunlight.

Favorite season? I think it would be impossible to decide because the park has its own magnificence throughout the year. If you have never visited the park, or if it's been a while, plan a visit. It is truly an inspirational experience.
