ESTES PARK, Colo. -- The elk that roam across Rocky Mountain National Park in their slow-moving majesty have become a signature attraction for tourists and an economic driver of the local economy in this town at the park's edge. But the animals leave some mighty big hoof prints. The park's biology has been skewed by elk overpopulation, which biologists say is squeezing out even butterflies and beavers, both of which need the aspen groves that the elk herd of perhaps 3,000 animals decimates in its search for food.

As the lyrics say: "It's fun to stay at the YMCA." No, really. Far from the urban recreation centers or all-male dormitories that many Americans think of, a handful of year-round historic YMCA resorts that once catered to summering families and religious retreats have become today's little-known outdoor gems. Though most of the 2,663 U.S. branches of the YMCA, or Young Men's Christian Association, are local community centers that focus on providing after-school activities and fitness facilities for members, several Y's are lodge-based camps in coveted vacation spots such as the Colorado Rockies and Keanae, along the winding coast road to Hana on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

ESTES PARK, Colo. -- The brothers, all in their 30s and 40s, nabbed the oldest one just outside his lodge room, smearing shaving cream all over him, themselves and anyone else who got in the way, just as they had as boys.That's one family tradition that surely will endure, I thought, as a glob of shaving cream hit me smack on the neck.The six siblings in my husband's family, their parents, spouses and children -- 23 of us in all -- were gathered at the YMCA of the Rockies' Estes Park Center, just outside Rocky MountainNational Park, for a weeklong family reunion to nurture the family connections . . . dumb traditions and all.Like most American families, we're spread across the country.

DENVER -- Maryland's distinctive state flag stood out in the offertory procession of the opening Mass here Wednesday night for the rally of young Roman Catholics from around the world.There were two reasons.One was Baltimore's Archbishop William H. Keeler, who as elected head of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops is chairman of Denver's weeklong international gathering called -- officially -- World Youth Day '93.This upbeat religious rally of 170,000 teen-agers and young adults, concluding with another open-air Mass on Sunday morning, is what brought both Pope John Paul II and President Clinton to Denver yesterday.

Are you a new kid in school? Did your best friend just dump you, taking all your friends with her? Whatever your scene is, the following tips for making friends can help.* Pick one or two kids who seem really cool and talk to them. Ask about something simple at first, like a school assignment. Start up a conversation about a team or a movie and really listen to what they have to say. Kids like caring listeners who make eye contact.* Join a club or a team. Figure out what you like and go for it. If you ride the bus and can't get transportation if you stay late, ask a coach or club leader for help finding a ride.
