    Animals Come Out At Night

    Any trip to Rocky Mountain National Park isn’t complete without seeing some wildlife. During the day, while you’re likely to see lots of Elk, a moose or two and perhaps a mountain goat, you’ll have a greater chance to see more wildlife after dusk and just before dawn. The tourist population drops drastically when it gets dark and the park doesn’t allow any building in the park to have lights visible to the road so that’s when the animals are more likely to roam freely. Although you might have to look a little harder, as it will be more difficult to spot wildlife in the dark it’s worth a trip. I recommend taking a drive in the park around dawn or just around dusk to spot the most diversity and action. On one of our trips at dusk we spotted fox, moose, elk, big horn sheep to name a few.

    Dress Code: Jeans and a jacket. It can cool down in the evenings even in the Summer.
