Rocky Mountain National Park is opening today (May 27) and the animals are here for it.

Rocky Mountain National Park is now open and the animals are out. This morning, Estes Park News posted photos announcing the opening of RMNP. As I was flipping through the photos I noticed a very funny welcome team "working" the front gates.

Two Turkeys and Elk are right at the entrance of the park as if to welcome visitors back.

If you're planning a visit, things are a bit different than the last time you went. All park visitors are asked to follow local health orders, and to avoid crowds or high-risk outdoor activities.

  • Keep your social distance from other people.
  • Wear a cloth face mask in restrooms and when you cannot properly socially distance yourself from others.
  • Avoid visiting the park if you are sick or were recently.
  • Clean up after yourself
  • Protect wildlife by giving animals plenty of space. Do not feed them and watch for them while driving, as they’ve started to congregate on park roads more often
