Question by Live*Laugh*Love: If I only had a half of a day to spend in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado , what should I do ?
We are visiting Colorado and can only dedicate a half of a day to Rocky Mountain National Park . Does anyone have any suggestions on how to use that time wisely and enjoy the park the most and see the best it has to offer.
