In the last year, the word "reservation" has been used in almost any sense of leaving the house. With the grasp COVID has had on society, almost everything required a reservation from restaurants, to skiing, and almost everything in between. You even needed a reservation with a timed entry to go to Rocky Mountain National Park. Well, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. A spokesperson from Rocky Mountain announced this week that they do not anticipate having to implement the same timed entry reservation system this summer. Of course a lot could change by May, but as of right now things are looking up. Keep your fingers crossed as we are hopefully seeing the end of what has been a trying year on outdoor enthusiasts everywhere.
