Fun Facts

In the past, Rocky Mountain National Park published Tidbits via the Internet. These Tidbits have been updated and are now a part of these Fun Facts pages listed on this page. The original idea was that the Tidbit page would provide a bit of information and some attractive pictures about a natural history topic, an answer to the "burning question of the week," or an event in the park. We have specifically tried to size some of the more attractive large photos to be made into wallpaper for your computer screen (by right clicking on the picture and selecting "Set as background"). As a result, we hope you find Fun Facts informative and useful.

The Fun Facts have been organized into the following categories. Clicking on the category name will jump you to that set of Fun Facts.

ENVIRONMENT AND ECOSYSTEMS
FAUNA

GEOLOGY
