“It was wonderful to be hiking back in Colorado. The hikes up in the Rocky Mountains were fantastic. It was great to see Carol again and both Carol and George made the tour so special. They work well together and made the tour so much fun, especially with George’s sense of humor. Loved the trip.” Barbara V.
Rocky Mountain National Park is one of America’s great scenic treasures and is the site of our Colorado hiking trip. Within its borders are some of the world’s most spectacular alpine features—towering above-timberline peaks that are snowclad year-round, countless lakes and beautiful mountain valleys. In so many ways, the park also is a celebration of Colorado, a state renowned for its high-mountain majesty, attributable in no small measure to the presence of 54 named summits exceeding 14,000 feet in elevation. In a single hike we can pass through 3 life zones whose flora and fauna change as the elevation changes.
