Rocky Mountain National Park: Wintertime Wonder Tour
Rocky Mountain National Park is a beautiful and interesting place to visit during the winter months. Elk and deer are frequently seen along the road as snow-capped peaks rise majestically in the background. With the assistance of a Field Institute guide from Rocky Mountain Conservancy, we’ll journey through selected areas of the park, enjoying the serenity of wintertime in such areas as the Alluvial Fan, Trail Ridge Road (to Many Parks Curve) and the Bear Lake corridor, with short walks highlighting the quiet magnificence.
Lunch will be included with this tour. If weather permits, there will be opportunities for short walks. Dress in layers, wear hiking boots/shoes, and bring appropriate outdoor gear, water and snacks.
Note: Enroute to and at Rocky Mountain National Park, this is a bus tour. Participants will be spending extended time on the bus, primarily due to seasonally cold temperatures and high winds at the park. The bus tour will include stops along the road for viewing wildlife and at pull-offs for taking pictures. No major walking or hiking will be required for this tour. Tour routes will be subject to availability.
