Rocky Mountains, Colorado
It’s nearly impossible to hear the words “Rocky Mountains” without humming a little John Denver. Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park spans over 415 square miles. It contains over 300 miles of trails to hike and one of the most spectral breathtaking sunsets that Colorado has to offer. It is a living showcase of the splendor of the Rocky Mountains.
There’s no better way to discover the Rocky Mountains than taking a scenic ride down Trail Ridge Road. Stretching for 48 miles, it offers plenty of opportunities for sightseeing. It gives you the chance to enjoy the Rocky Mountains in leisure. And a ride through Estes Park is the best way to end this tour. This town is well known for providing a breathtaking view of Prospect Mountain.
As a bonus, check out The Stanley Hotel. You probably know it as The Overlook Hotel from “The Shining,” which was based on Stephen King’s novel by the same name. Now you have the chance to see this enormous, 142-room hotel for yourself.
