          Yeah, it really was ... I could have cast a fishing line from the balcony. Accommodations were simple but nice; it's not meant to be a luxury hotel, but it's well above rustic while maintaining a comfortable charm. Only quibbles: slow internet; lousy TV signal on a few channels; a tad noisy (i.e., not well insulated between rooms)

We stopped at Milner Pass, which denotes the Continental Divide at this point. When you come to a continental divide, it means that rivers to one side will flow to the Pacific Ocean, whilst those on the other side will flow to the Atlantic Ocean. We arrived at ...

We didn't fill up the jeep and started with half of a tank (the jeep only holds 10 gallons) of gas and a extra fuel cell of four gallons stored behind the back seat. We quickly climb from Estes Park elevation of about 7500' to 11,500', what a view. Near the top we arrive at the snow fields (leftover from the winter) and get out to play in them. The temp has dropped into the low 50s ...

          One Lovely Day in Rocky Mountain National Park

          A travel blog entry by ajbrad on May 30, 2014

          In 1999, my husband and I made a short visit to the Rocky Mountain National Park while on a business trip to Denver, Colorado. The town of Estes Park is at the entrance to the park and is only 71 miles NW of Denver so was a good "day trip" for us. After entering the park, we took a hike along one of the beautiful streams in the park.  We saw many Elk in ...

"You’ll just have to wait until we get closer" he said, with that sly smile I love. But I knew I was about to see mountains! The closer we got, the clearer the sheer beauty of the Rockies came into focus and before we knew it we were in the foothills. Huge rocky “hills” (basically mountains to me) were ...

          ... a long journey and a good job we were in the 4x4 as the route is pretty much off-road. On the way we saw a number of police cars and fire engines trying to tackle a blaze which was pretty worrying - they let us into the park for free because only a couple of camp sites were open due to the fires. Camp Moraine was 'full' but they managed to squeeze us in!

          Obviously there was a strict rule that no fires were to be lit, and all food, toiletries, ...
