Description


Historic Rocky Mountain National Park captures fascinating moments and untold stories in the history of this magnificent national park, from the days when Paleo-Indians roamed between the mountain peaks to the settlement of the valleys by ranchers and hoteliers. Stories of the Ute and Arapaho tribes, the 1859 Gold Rush, the first people to summit 14,259-foot-high Long's Peak, the women who climbed to the top of the Rockies, the fossils revealed by snowfield melt, the advocates who worked to protect this landscape, and more provide just enough history to make your visit to the top of America even more exciting than you anticipated.
