Happy 100th Birthday: Rocky Mountain National Park

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” -Ernest Hemingway

This week marks the 100th anniversary of the spectacular Rocky Mountain Park in Colorado. Only an hour up from our house, we head up there as often as possible, which usually amounts to about twice a month. In any month, the park is astounding, but it is particularly peaceful this time of year, when the snow begins to pile up and the trails become white ribbons cutting through the forest, fields and alpine tundra. Here, in honor of the park, I have thrown together a few photos from each season.
