Hiking the Rockies

Colorado has lots of beautiful natural areas, but one of the most interesting trips is hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. Here, the Rockies reach their highest peaks (over 10,000ft.) and great a natural divide from which the main rivers of the US sprout both east and west. One of the best and most visually stunning hikes is the Trail Ridge which runs up to the peaks through forests, waterfalls, alpine meadows, and lakes, all in a surrounding of peaks that remain snowy even in summer.

The lookout point is located exactly 11,796 feet and is one of my favorite places in the world. You get a panoramic view of the park, in and of itself one of the top adventure destinations in the nation.
