The rocky mountains form the Continental Divide, separating rivers draining to the Atlantic and Arctic oceans from those draining to the Pacific. The major Atlantic-bound rivers rising in the Rockies include the Rio Grande, Arkansas, Platte, Yellowstone, Missouri, and Saskatchewan. Those draining to the Arctic include the Peace, Athabasca, and Liard rivers. Flowing to the Pacific Ocean are the Colorado, Columbia, Snake, Fraser, and Yukon rivers.
RMNP spans 265,769 acres of pristine wilderness (358 square miles), making it one of the largest national parks in the United States. Before 1978, there were very few moose in Rocky Mountain National Park. In 1978 and 1979, 24 moose were relocated from Wyoming, and by 1994, the herd had grown to 700 moose. Today, most of the moose in Rocky Mountain National Park are on the western side, in and near Grand Lake.

Winter Season view of St Malo’s Chapel on the Rock, Built atop a massive granite rock, it’s in every way a part of the valley landscape. Saint Catherine’s Stone Chapel on the Rock sits in the shadow of Mount Meeker, the 13,916-foot peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Chapel on the Rock (officially, Saint Catherine of Siena Chapel) is a popular tourist landmark in Allenspark, Colorado, visited by thousands every year. The chapel is located on the grounds of the Saint Malo Retreat Center, the retreat center for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Denver, near Mount Meeker. In 1999, Boulder County designated the chapel as a historic site. Pope John Paul II prayed at the chapel during his visit to Denver for World Youth Day in 1993.

The East Face of the mountain as seen in this image is quite very steep, and is surmounted by a gigantic sheer cliff known as “The Diamond” named because of its shape, approximately that of a cut diamond. Trails that ascend Longs Peak include the East Longs Peak Trail, the Longs Peak Trail, the Keyhole Route, Clark’s Arrow and the Shelf Trail. Buy this print for sale online – Longs Peak Winter View
