We are all  finding silver linings following the floods.  This weekend we can
get back to our beloved Rocky Mountains AND enjoy them with no fees.

Rocky Mountain National Park reopened several major areas and trails on Thursday. Gates opened on Bear Lake Road, Upper Beaver Meadows, Lumpy Ridge and Longs Peak Road.

That means 93 percent of the park is now open. However, because of severe flood damage, several trails and areas remain closed. They are the Twin Sisters Trail, Aspenglen Campground, Longs Peak Campground, Cow Creek Trailhead, North Fork Trail, Ypsilon and Lawn Lake trails.

No fees will be charged this weekend at the park's entrances, campgrounds and backcountry camp sites. Fees will resume Monday, September 30.
