Ken Burns' Secrets of Rocky Mountain National Park

Famous documentarian, Ken Burns sat down with USA TODAY and shared some of the secrets of Rocky Mountain Park. He is struck by the life’s mission of one man to protect the region and keep it out of private hands for development.

The secrets? Ken says that it’s the 450 miles of hiking trails going through the park. (There’s really only about 350 miles, but the grandeur of the scenery makes everything scale larger, and we appreciate his enthusiasm.)
