Voted 4/5

An enjoyable, quick read with enough new things thrown in to satisfy most avid RMNP fans. Each chapter is short, to the point and written with a bit of humor. I found the variety of topics covered wide enough to keep me interested (history, natural disasters, wild animals, climbing, and assorted) and enough bits of information to inform a group I traveled with last summer!
