Today, Rocky Mountain National Park is taking over our Instagram account – celebrating its 100th anniversary, while honoring the wilderness, wildlife and wonder of the park. 

Over 95 percent of Rocky Mountain National Park is designated Wilderness, an untrammeled landscape where humans are only visitors. Setting off on any of Rocky’s 355+ trails will leave you with a wilderness experience to last a lifetime.

Rocky Mountain National Park is home to an abundance of wildlife. Perhaps the most famous are the elk.

For over 100 years Rocky Mountain National Park has inspired wonder. Many have visited, looked up at the same night sky, and pondered their future. Feeling dwarfed by the stars or a mountain peak keeps life in perspective.
