Today we hang out in the beautiful little town of Estes Park. The town is located at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The plan today is just to relax, do some shopping and prepare for the race tomorrow.
We head to the high school for package pickup. Les is scheduled to run the half marathon and I am scheduled to run the full marathon. Linda asks what it takes to get one of the nice pink tech shirts given ...
Had a leisurely breakfast at the lodge sat outside by the river. Headed out to do our first full trail in a national park, called Gem Lake Trail. It was a 4 mile very steep climb but well worth it for spectacular views over Estes Park all the way up and it culminated at a little lake at the top.

I wish we could have gone closer but we were to stay on the marked path - the tundra faces all aspects of weather and takes centuries to heal so the trails were built to prevent foot traffic from causing even more damage.
It was then time to head back for town..... what an amazing first day back in COLORADO :D
