On the 26th January 1915, Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of
the United States, signed a legislation that created the Rocky
Mountain National Park. The incredibly beautiful national park
enjoys a landscape that is unique to the area. One of the features
of the park is the incredible mountain views - one third of the
park is above the tree-line. The Continental Divide runs right
throughout the middle of the park.
In grassy valleys and weather-ravaged mountain peaks, the Rocky
Mountain National Park is home to a wide array of wildlife
including elk, deer, moose, bighorn sheep, black bears, coyotes,
cougars, eagles, hawks and countless smaller animals. Estes Park is
the capital of the national park and is where you will find The
Stanley Hotel, a fabulous Edwardian building that inspired Stephen
King, while staying as a guest in the hotel, to change the setting
for part of his book 'The Shining'.
