The entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is only 3 miles away when you are ready for remarkable natural features, hiking, picnicking and viewing wildlife.
Fall is a favorite time to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. The kids are back in school and the summer crowds have thinned. The air is clear and crisp and the colors spectacular. Wildlife viewing is all around.
Fall brings clear blue skies and crisp air punctuated with occasional snows, bugling elk and bighorn sheep butting contests. Aspen start turning in late August at higher elevations and the golden leaves work their way down to lower elevations in October. The peak of the gold rush in our mountains is usually in late September. Daylight and elevation set the timing of the color season. Rain, snow, cold and wind affect the intensity of color.
Elk bugling runs from mid-September to mid-October, although some bugles may be heard in late August and late October.
Bighorn sheep stage their head-butting contests in October and November.
High variance is the only constant about our weather. There is not a single month of the year which is historically snow-free. On the other hand, there is not a single month in which we do not have picnic lunches on sunny decks.
What to wear at this time of year? Layers, layers, layers. Sunny days, you could be in shirt sleeves. Mornings and late afternoons, you'll add a sweatshirt or jacket. Enthusiastic elk watchers may want a coat, hat, gloves for dusk and evening bugle concerts.
For your convenience this condo provides a washer/dryer, wifi, 40 inch flat screen HD SMART TV (access to your Netflix, Roku, Amazon, and HBOgo accounts) and basic cable. Also, 2 flat screen TV's located in each bedroom. The full kitchen is stocked with most amenities and the grocery store is located 1.5 miles away. A gas grill is available on the back deck for your culinary desires. Visit Bear Creek Luxury condo to experience pure mountain living, with majestic Old Man Mountain to your East and spectacular Castle Mountain to your West. The lull of Fall River will ease you to sleep and gently wake you in the morning.
