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)

... park and the pictures we took don’t do it justice; you have to see it.
We arrived in Estes Park around 3:30. It is a charming little town with a busy main street with lots of stores and shops. We are going to leave the mountains tomorrow and head up to I80 in Nebraska. I’m not sure that I will post any more blogs because I don’t think the next 3 days will be too exciting. Wait and see.

... back to the Visitor's Center the clouds were thick and near the road, we even drove through a few. Of course, it was raining again by now. It took us more than an hour to get across the park and everybody else was trying to do the same thing. When we got out of the park, the traffic was bumper to bumper all the way into Estes Park. When we finally got to the cottage it was after 3:00 Erin and I had headaches probably from all the changes ...
... I am not and it was all downhill from there – actually it was all uphill and that was the root of the problem – I had to stop half way around as my heart rate was over 170 and I thought I was going to pop!
I headed up north to Rocky Mountain National Park. Last time I was there was about 18 months ago and that was a very different experience. Back then it was late September, warm and sunny, and as it was a Saturday it was packed and the shuttle bus ...
... before 9 or after 4, so we determined to do that. Along with about 5,000 of our closest friends. Despite the fact that we left the hotel about 8:15, the lines going down were long. We did have to stop for about 20 minutes at one spot (as warned) while traffic was led through a one-way stretch, but we hit the second spot better, so we did not have to stop as long--maybe 5 minutes. We were warned, at the first stop, that the Bear Lake ...
... good-bye to Papa and Ahmmy (they headed back to Grand Junction), and drive to Colorado Springs where we met up with Kristina (one of Mommy’s best friends since she was in kindergarten), Glenn and Teagan for dinner! I was surprised that the girls remembered each other and they had so much fun together! Tomorrow…the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo! ...
