Description

The Rocky Mountains, frequently called simply “the Rockies,” are part of a broad mountain range in western North America that spans more than 3,000 miles (4,800 kilometers) from the northernmost region of British Columbia, Canada southward to New Mexico in the United States. The Rockies’' highest peak is Colorado's Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet (4,401 meters) above sea level.The original 358.5 square miles of territory that would become Rocky Mountain National Park is part of the huge Louisiana Purchase made by the U.S. government under President Thomas Jefferson with Napoleon of France in 1803. The Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804-1806) was the first scientific exploration of the Rocky Mountains. The expedition collected specimens for botanists, zoologists, and geologists and began the western expansion of the United States. In 1859, Joel Estes, a Kentuckian, and his son went hunting. Following the trail of a bear, they came out on a high promontory and looked down into a beautiful valley where, in the summer of 1860, the Estes family settled and began farming. Fifty-five years later, on January 26, 1915, President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation designating 265,769 acres, as “Rocky Mountain National Park” near the Estes Valley. Rocky Mountain National Park is home to 900 species of plants, 281 types of birds and 60 species of mammals.

In 1859, Joel Estes, a Kentuckian, brought his family to Colorado as a part of the 1859 gold rush and eventually settled there and began farming near Fort Lupton. In the fall of that year, as the mountains were ablaze with red and gold aspen trees, Estes and his son went hunting.
