The Rocky Mountains are a consequence of a little understood subterranean force that began pushing up the earth’s crust in western North America some 65 million years ago-about the same time the age of the dinosaurs was coming to an end. The land continued to rise for the next 60 million years before reaching its present height, but the initial uplift marked only the first phase in the formation of the Colorado Rockies. Nature’s real artistry began about 3 million years ago with the onset of the Ice Age. Since that time the Rocky Mountains have been encased in ice at least a half dozen times, and a succession of glaciations have gouged out valleys, cleaved off peaks, and excavated alpine lakes throughout the range. This sculpting process came to an end when the glaciers subsided some 10,000 years ago, and today a fine example of nature’s handiwork is preserved in the 409 square miles of Rocky Mountain National Park.
