Rocky Mountain National Park

Adventure, Explore, Discover

Series: America's National Parks

By Doreen Gonzales

Home to elk, bighorn sheep, and mountain lions, Rocky Mountain National Park has more than one hundred mountains higher than ten thousand feet. Author Doreen Gonzales, who has visited the park many times, explores its geology—the Continental Divide runs through the park—as well as its history and ecology. Descriptions of its alpine tundra, dense forests, and mountainous meadows are here, along with activities that can be done in the park, such as hiking and horseback riding.
