Rocky Mountain High
Yesterday we drove up to Estes Park with Glen & Diane. It's a lovely town that merits another exploration. We parked at the Visitor Center, and then headed towards Estes Lake. We saw the lake, took some pics, and then back down the trail to head into town. There is a riverwalk that allows you to view the shops from behind and see fish and chipmunks. We were recommended by some locals to eat lunch at Poppy's, where we had a nice lunch. Following lunch we did some shopping, and headed back to the car. We drove up the road to the Stanley Hotel.
I've been wanting to see the Stanley Hotel ever since I saw The Shining. It's a gorgeous, charming hotel that I hope to save enough pennies to stay at sometime. We grabbed some coffee drinks in the cafe there, and then drove home.
We're having a wonderful visit, Elijah loves having Nana & Grampy to play with.
