Rocky Mountain National Park General: 47 reviews and 53 photos
Favorite thing: There are several overlooks and trailheads within the first fifteen miles of entering from the west before the road rises well above the Colorado River. If you love moose and elks, you can always monitor certain overlooks along the river where the animals tend to concentrate, such as the Beaver Ponds (most recommended) or the Beaver Creek Picnic Area.
Fondest memory: Animals appear with some predictability in several locations in the park, including the moose, the elks, and the bighorn sheep. Elks are aplenty in Rocky almost throughout the park at any time during the summer and fall. Bighorn and moose are notoriously more difficult to encounter, so patience and perseverance will be required.
