Family Weekend Getaway in Rocky Mountain National Park
Estes Park is a year-round destination, with summer being the most popular thanks to warm days, cool nights, and optimal wildlife-sightings at Rocky Mountain National Park. July is the height of wildflower season when the meadows explode into blues, yellows, and reds. Fall is a close second, with cooler temperatures and leaves turning colors — most notably the bright yellow of the aspen trees. Fall is also when you can expect to hear the bugle-like mating call of the park's many elk, and spot a bighorn sheep. Spring, especially March, gets the heaviest snow and the fewest visitors. But it also affords the best hotel rates, as well as a chance to spy baby animals. Winter is serene and beautiful, for those who don't mind the cold. Snowshoeing is a popular activity in the park during the winter, and a good way to view wildlife.
