This week’s National Park Getaway
ESTES PARK, Colo. – Breathtaking doesn’t even begin to describe the views you’ll find at this week’s National Park Getaway. Waterfalls, wildlife and an expansive wilderness are all part of the massive grandeur.
You’ll find miles of splendor at Rocky Mountain National Park, less than a two-hour drive from Denver. Within park boundaries, more than seventy-five peaks top 12,000 feet. With over 300 miles of hiking trails, 140-plus lakes and hundreds of miles of streams, opportunities for recreation are endless.
This weekend, August 24 and 25, Rocky Mountain National Park will host the sixth in the series of National Park Service-National Geographic Society BioBlitzes. In neighboring Estes Park, a Biodiversity Festival at the Stanley Park Fairgrounds promises a full schedule of music, ranger programs, live animal demonstrations, photography workshops, poetry and talks by leading scientists.
