It’s no surprise that songs have praised the beauty of this untarnished sanctuary, which celebrates its centennial anniversary in 2015. Covering 265,873 acres of Colorado, Rocky Mountain National Park demonstrates some of the greatest ecological diversity contained within a single national park. More than 60 peaks break the three-kilometre mark, making them inhospitable to most plants and animals. Closer to sea level, fauna thrive in pine forests and lush meadows, where wildflowers in every hue also flourish. Elk, black bears and mule deer are the most abundant here, but watchful eyes could glimpse the more elusive moose and bighorn sheep too.
