Where would I need to go?

Where would a man need to go if he had never seen the Rocky Mountains?? Would it be expensive to stay a night or two?

    OCC
    I believe they start in the Yukon, Canada and run south to Mexico.

    Colorado would be a nice place to start
    I think they have like 54 peaks over 14,000 feet

    Good luck in your quest, it is a very easy goal to complete.
    get on a plane fly to denver, Colorado. Rent a car drive west and enjoy!!

    You could take the train ride to the top of Pike's Peek by Denver. It is pretty cheap and easy if sight seeing is your goal. The view is pretty good from up there ...

    Let us know what state you currently live in and that will help us direct you to the closest area to see the ol rockies.

    There are several hundred posters on this board alone that live in or on the fringes of the rockies including myself. I guess we tend to take their beauty for granted being able to see them all day but every time I leave home for flat land and come back home I am again amazed.

    I am fotunate that the the back stop view behind my shooting range is directly into the Sun River Game range with Sawtooth and Steamboat mountains in full view!!

    Well, being a colorado resident I'd say you should come out here, sometimes my family and I go up to estes park and from there you can go into rocky mountain national park, and if you come in the right time of year (which i cant remember but some easy research would work) you can see the elk in estes park, literall elk standing on the side of the streets, thousands. And from what i remember, its not too expensive either.

    Dang Kirby you already forgot me! I'm kidding. I'm in Alabama and really want to see the Rockies. I have waited too long and am determined to see them soon.

    OldCenterChurch AKA "Auburn Tiger" I just got them to change my name on here due to all the football hubub.
