The story of Rocky’s rocks is the foundation on which all the wonders we see are built - the mountain peaks, valleys, lakes, ecosystems, wildlife, and the weather. Join us for a journey through time to explore what helped sculpt this landscape.
These programs are free and open to the public. For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park please visit www.nps.gov/romo or call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
