The Rocky Mountains National Park is one of the most unique and impressive natural paradises in the U.S.A. It covers an area of 1,000 square kilometres and was inaugurated in 1915.
The picturesque Bear Lake lies within a forested area and is one of the most popular tourist destinations of the park. At high altitude, several paths, such as the Nature Trail, lead through the lakeís natural landscape. The idyllic beauty is truly spellbinding and it is not surprising that Bear Lake is the most popular photo shot of the entire park.
It was discovered that 12,000 years ago, prehistoric Indians hunted within the Rocky Mountains. The legendary culture of the Nasazi Indians originated around 2,000 years ago and left its traces in what is today the national park.
Alberta Falls, in the south of Glacier Gorge, is one of the parkís most popular sightseeing destinations where white masses of foaming water race down several levels into the valley below.
The road from Glacier Gorge winds its way in a northerly direction past Glacier Basin and the eastern park entrance close to Estes Park. In this region, the Rocky Mountains are at their most beautiful. The landscape in the area of Horseshoe Park is reminiscent of the exciting and colorful Wild West of old.
The vast wilderness in the west of the U.S.A. has survived in the Rocky Mountains, right up to the present day and is a fascinating tribute to the amazing natural world of North America.
