Rocky Mountains

The Rocky Mountains are quite literally the back bone of North America, stretching over 3000 miles from Canada in the North to New Mexico in the South. The Rocky Mountain National Park, accessed from Denver, Colorado, is a haven for wildlife and wilderness and a breathtaking destination for anyone with a passion for the outdoors. Visiting mid-winter reveals a harshly frostbitten landscape, and with much of the resident fauna overwintering in warmer climes or safely settled in hibernation, the alpine slopes of the high peaks foster a frigid sense of abandonment. The sheltered woodlands of the lower slopes however give refuge to a number of perennial residents seeking protection from the icy catabatic winds above.
