Description

Excerpt from Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado To those who study it, the park reveals stories of great natural dramas of earth forces that made its deep gorges and lofty peaks, and of once-mighty glaciers that carved its remote lakes. Its forests and wild owers tell a story of struggle and adjustment to environments that differ with altitude and exposure. Its native populations - deer, elk, bear, beaver, birds and the myriad lesser creatures of the wild can be seen in their natural habitats. Its streams attract the hopeful fisherman; its unmodified natural compositions enthrall the artist; its cool, green setting appeals to all summer travelers. Enos Mills, father of Rocky Mountain National Park, wrote about 40 years ago: A National Park is a fountain of life. Without parks and out door life all that is best in civilization will be smothered. To save our Selves - to enable us to live at our best and happiest, parks are necessary. Within National Parks is room - glorious room - room in which to find ourselves, in which to think and hope, to dream and plan, to rest, and resolve. His words are even more significant to our generation than they were to his. This booklet is an attempt to provide a concise summary of some of the park's important natural values and to arouse your appetite for further pursuit of the enjoyment they offer. The basic experience in this National Park, as in most, is to capture some of the inspiration and spiritual qualities of the landscape which Enos Mills felt so keenly.
