The park includes an outstanding, scenic, multi-colored geologic amphitheater with a mixture of spruce/fir forest and subalpine meadows on the rim lands.

At this elevation, (8,100–10,662 feet), winters are long and cold. Summers are brief and cool. Mean monthly minimum temperatures are above 32 degrees F only in June, July, August, and September. Annual cumulative snowfalls can exceed 30 feet. A wide variety of plant life exists in the park, due to the wide range in elevationandmicro-habitats. The park’s topographic diversity also supports a large variety of animal life.
