ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK appeals to all of the senses. The bluest of skies, the smell of the pines on the cool breeze and birdsong mix together while Long’s Peak towers in the distance to over 14,000 feet. Throw in some good friends who just happen to have a rustic cabin nearby and you have a perfect weekend.

It’s been several years since we’ve been to the Park and we stayed with Tim and Candice, too, if I recall. In those pre-Covid days you could enter whenever you wanted—now you need to reserve a time slot. It’s partly Ken Burn’s fault; his series on the National Parks, is at least in part responsible for their increased popularity. They truly are “America’s Best Idea.”  But you don’t even have to enter the park—we saw this bull elk on the way to dinner!
