[About the Great Lives biography series.]

Enos Mills was a sickly boy whose health improved after he moved from Kansas to Colorado at age 14 in 1884. Enos settled in Estes Park where he quickly came to love the outdoor life of hiking, hunting, fishing, and horseback riding. He climbed nearby Long's Peak 325 times during his lifetime.

Enos Mills, like John Muir in California and other conservationists, came to understand the need to protect and preserve America's scenic and recreational resources.

Beginning around 1909, Mills devoted his time and energy to the preserving a large area around Estes Park. His efforts came to fruition in 1915 when Congress set aside more than 265,000 acres as Rocky Mountain national Park.
