One of the undisputed benefits of living in the Front Range is the easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park. A short drive from any of the communities along the Front Range, the beautiful RMNP is a great day trip for both locals and visitors.
Spring in my mind starts in April, but to most folks the first real signs of spring in Rocky Mountain National Park arrive in May. The picture of Moraine Park shows early May, in a mere 3 weeks the entire meadow will be green and lush. The dead tan grass will give way to wildflower patches dotting the landscape.
Hey, did you know that April 16th-24th is National Park Week? "What's that?" you say - well it's a week when all of our great nation's 394 natural playgrounds throw open their gates for FREE! So bring your family, bring your friends, tell your book club, "SPRING IS HERE and let's get outside to play!"
