FCIC’s 13th Annual Frontier Days Rodeo and Indian Village Trip


The Fort Collins International Center (FCIC) took 53 international students, scholars, and family members on the 13th annual trip to Cheyenne Frontier Days, the largest outdoor rodeo in the world. The rodeo consisted of bull riding, steer wrestling, wild horse racing, bucking broncos riding as well as other events.

Day Trip to Rocky Mountain National Park

We took 38 people to the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, where we had a scenic drive through the park watching for wildlife, climbing above timberline on Trail Ridge Road to the Alpine Visitor Center. There, we will have a 360 degree vista of the park, explore the visitor center and gift store and perhaps walk up Huffer’s Hill, a very short, but very fun walk to the highest point in the park! Then, we will head to the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, where we will learn about the park through the video and topographical relief map. Along the way, we will stop for panoramic pictures at Many Curves Parks. After this picturesque morning, we will head back to Estes Park for lunch and to spend some time exploring the town.
