Don't Let April Fool You

Across the country this winter's heat wave gave us record highs for many days, but when you visit Rocky Mountain National Park in April, don't get fooled.  April is typically one of the snowiest months of the year, so don't be surprised if we still get a few more tastes of winter.  April is an exciting month due to that unknown.  The hibernating animals are awakening, some birds are migrating, and it can go from sunny to blizzard in the span of a day.  April is a great time to be in the park, just make sure you are prepared for all the potential outfit changes from shorts and t-shirts to parkas and snowshoes!
