Visit Colorado: Rocky Mountain National Park

While in Colorado, we had no real plans of visiting Rocky Mountain National Park since it's quite a drive from Denver.  However, we found ourselves headed towards the direction of this 415-square mile park, so we braved the heavy snowfall to drive there, while crossing our fingers that we'd see wildlife.

And wildlife we saw!

We saw lots and lots of elk as soon as we entered the park grounds.

Cars were lined up on each side of the road to watch and photograph these huge animals.

We made our way to the entry gate, and ended up turning around.  Although no fees were being taken due to the heavy snowfall and limited access to the park, it was already getting late, and we didn't want to drive back to Denver in the dark during the heavy snow.  We also asked another visitor if it was worth driving up any further.  He said no, and that there were more animals outside of the main entrance.

It was truly neat to see all of that wildlife, especially in all of that snow.

Hopefully one day we'll be back to explore more of Rocky Mountain National Park!
