"Seeing Through Outdoor Eyes" Rocky Mountain National Park
Field Course & Guided Tours

Visiting A National Park:
© Philip Tulin Many visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park miss a lot during their tour of the park. It is not because they failed to visit every area of the park (because it is never possible), it is because they miss seeing, hearing and experiencing everything around them when they are driving, walking or hiking through the park. They don't know how to use their 5 senses to really see and experience not only the National Park, but even their own back yard. I recall a conversation at dinner with my best friend (who is extremely successful in business). He knew that I was an avid birder and bird photographer. He was so proud when he said, "I saw this amazing, beautiful red bird in the backyard of my home that I've never seen before." Of course, I knew immediately that it was a cardinal, seen quite often every day of the year. Here was a man, who is wealthy enough to go away on vacations every 4-6 weeks to all corners of the world. And he never noticed a red cardinal in the backyard of his home. How much more did he miss during all his trips? He is a very smart individual, but he never learned to "See Through Outdoor Eyes".
