Rocky Mountain National Park Warnings and Dangers: 23 reviews and 16 photos
When driving around Rocky Mountain National Park, you need to be alert and heed speed limits. Not only are the roads generally winding with many blind curves, there is ample wildlife using road corridors for easy travel themselves. Though the park is not as noted a wildlife park as say Yellowstone in Wyoming, depending on the time of year, you may see a lot more than you anticipated.
We were there in late September 2008 and the sizeable elk population was gearing up for the mating season. Males were bugling, females scurrying, and all of them crossing roads at all hours. It was tough to go on a drive anywhere without seeing elk. Not that we were complaining. Just watch where you are going and remember, you're not late for work, you're there to enjoy yourself and relax.
