Rocky Mountain National Park

This week we take you along as we check another item off our travel bucket list... stunningly beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park in amazing Colorado.

We'll get our National Parks Passport Book stamped at several of the park visitor centers, explain a bit about the national parks reservation system, take in the incredible views, learn some history and stretch our legs on a hike in the rain.

We get a lot of questions about our National Parks Passport. It's a great way for us to keep track of the fun places we visit in the US National Parks system. You can find them on Amazon.

Rocky Mountain National Park has been a dream destination for us for decades. We definitely look forward to visiting the Rockies and beautiful Colorado again in the future.

If you'd like to see more of Rocky Mountain National Park, check out our full drive along the highest continuous paved highway in America, Historic Trail Ridge Road.

And, yes, it was a true pleasure to cross paths with Traveling Robert while we were in Granby CO. You can watch our episode of Wingin' It! with Traveling Robert on

Note: This video was filmed in August 2022, prior to the filming rule changes within the National Parks.
