Spring time in RMNP—yes we were crazy! The campground was full, the pines were losing their pollen, worms were falling out of the trees (that is a NIGHTMARE for me!), and the rivers were flooding. But, we wanted to experience it all! 🙂
RMNP is a wonderful place to take the kids! There are so many ranger lead programs to enjoy during the camping season: lectures, walks, astronomy outings, and movies. We love doing all of the programs. The night sky and astronomy evening is amazing. We’ve never seen such large telescopes—some so tall you have to stand on a ladder to look through them! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOlZDt9fEiE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7F0kLWgE4g
