DENVER (AP) – Colorado Parks managers are recommending holiday gifts that might be hard to wrap, but easy to give: scenic views, wildlife watching, rock climbing and hiking.

Annual park passes top the list of gift recommendations from Colorado State Parks and Rocky Mountain National Park.

The annual pass to Rocky Mountain National Park is $40. Officials say 80 percent of the revenue from fees stays in the park.

A state pass costs $60 per year and covers admission to 42 state parks. The state agency manages more than 4,000 camp sites and 57 cabins and yurts.
