Did you know Daniel and I went to Denver for our honeymoon?

Yep, when I compared flight prices on Skyscanner and found they were only $26, it was a no brainer!

Of course, after we arrived in Denver, Rocky Mountain National Park was our first stop. The park is only a two hour drive from the city and definitely one of the most stunning places I have ever been in the United States.

If you haven’t planned a trip to hike and camp in Rocky Mountain National Park yet, these 10 photos of the park may give you just the travel inspo that you need.
