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)

After some discussion and a check of the weather forecast, we decide to drive up to the Rocky Mountain National Park first this morning.

We decided to spend the day doing the Trail Ridge Road to Grand Lake and saw the most wildlife we have seen on the trip. Mule deer, marmot, 3 buck (male) elks, buck moose, female moose with a baby, big horn ...
Today we woke up to beautiful blue skies and strong winds, but maybe a little less than yesterday. Because Trail Ridge Road was not open for travel, we decided to hike to Gem Lake, and we were not disappointed. The entire hike to Gem Lake was uphill for 1.7 miles. The scenery was early spring blooms and all kinds of strange rock formations. Lungs held out well and stops along the way ...
Well, the biggest score today, only 1/3 of the way thru, is that I scored a very bright orange (like traffic safety vest orange) cheesy daypack (shoddy, really shoddy) to wear when I'm exploring on my day adventures. Was priced at 7.99 at Goodwill, and I said, "no way". I found the manager, told him that seemed a bit much for what it was, he grabbed and changed the price to 1.99 (he strongly ...
