Exploring the Park Together: A Family Guide to Rocky Mountain National Park
Authors - Patricia Pickering and Patricia Washburn, illustrated by Patricia Greenberg
Timed to coincide with the coming celebration of the Park’s centennial, beginning in September 2014, this book engages readers in the splendors of scenery, wildlife, and plants that make Rocky Mountain National Park such a special place.
Exploring the Park Together is written by Pat Pickering and Pat Washburn and beautifully illustrated by Pat Greenberg, the team who produced the popular book, Tracks in Time: A Children’s History of Estes Park, published by the Press in 2012.
This new book is a companion piece aimed at acquainting readers of all ages with the significant sites in the Park through an auto tour that takes travelers to major locations, including the Alpine Visitor Center, Milner Pass, and the Kawuneeche Valley, as well as Bear Lake, Wild Basin, and the McGraw Ranch. Exploring the Park Together features many detailed and clever pencil drawings of the mountains, valleys, animals and plants that have attracted and delighted Park visitors for one hundred years. The book also includes information on major Park landmarks as well as historical photos and postcards of important Park places and events. Published by the Estes Park Museum Friends Press
