Keep an eye open and a camera ready for photos of elk, moose, big horn sheep, beaver, fox, coyotes, deer and lots of other wildlife. Be sure to stop at the Kawuneeche Visitor Center for park information, nature exhibits and slide shows.

Park Naturalists schedule tours and lectures. Stop off at one of the picnic areas or at the many viewpoints for a beautiful, quiet and relaxing experience. Trail Ridge road, open Memorial Day weekend through mid-October, is the highest (12,000 ft.) continuous highway in North America. The tundra, which exists above the tree line, is a fragile garden. The smallest flowers and delicate plants grow here.

"Thanks so much for all your help in facilitating our transition to this beautiful area with your clean, comfortable, warm rooms and their fabulous view. You have made us feel so welcome in our new home. Thank you kindly."

"We took our winter vacation to Grand Lake to experience the winter wildlife and of course go snowmobiling. We stayed the week at the Western Riviera. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. The staff at the Motel were friendly, helpful and accommodating. Grand Lake has wonderful places to eat and you can walk almost anywhere you want to go. There is no comparing the scenery from the Motel, across the lake or from the mountains. We were able to snowmobile right out of town. The views from the snowmobile trail were amazing ... If and when we take another vacation we will definitely return to Grand Lake and the Western Riviera."
