Ute Indians spent time in this area of the Colorado Rockies from the prehistoric era until the region was overcome with prospectors, homesteaders and hunters. Due to a long campaign by Enos Mills this sublime landscape was preserved as America’s tenth national park on January 26, 1915.  Come celebrate Rocky Mountain National Park’s one hundredth birthday this fall, September, 2014.
