Rocky Mountain National Park, established in 1915, is one of the great national parks. This was our second time in the park. We only had one day to spend but got to experience the highlights. If we had another day we might have taken on some longer hikes. As it was we drove Old Fall River Road – a one way dirt road up to the Alpine Visitor’s Center, hiked up to Marmot Point, and returned on Trail Ridge Road. Near Bear Lake we saw a large heard of Elk that frequent the area in the late afternoons. Our last hike of the day was a popular trail to Bear, Nymph, Dream and Emerald Lakes. We ended the day in the town of Estes Park, a tourist town near one of the park entrances.
