July 6: Enos Mills: “Father” of Rocky Mountain National Park: For his tireless efforts, Enos Mills (1870-1922) is remembered as the “father” of Rocky Mountain National Park and a Colorado legend. His 1884 arrival in Colorado at age 14 was the start of an abiding reverence for the mountains and nature. Five years later, a chance encounter with John Muir inspired him to wonder: could he do for the Rocky Mountains what Muir did for Yosemite? Hear the dramatic story of Enos Mills in this first-person narrative evoking a time when grizzlies still roamed Colorado and a national park was an elusive dream.
