Summary First published in 1889, this book begins with a glimpse of Estes Park as it was in the mid-1880s when Frederick H. Chapin of Connecticut vacationed there with his bride. A member of the Appalachian Mountain Club, Chapin scaled many of the mountains that later became part of Rocky Mountain National Park. His narrative of early mountaineering and his early photographs of the region include Estes Park, Long's Peak, Mount Hallett, Table Mountain, Mummy Mountain, Ypsilon Peak, Hague's Peak, and Stone's Peak. A new foreword by James H. Pickering pinpoints places and names today. Also included is a partial list of plants growing in Estes Park, Colorado.
