Where I stayed
On my way to the bookstore I spotted a small group of people with posters calling for 'Honk for Peace', 'Peace in the Middle East', 'Grandmas for Peace' etc. Quite a few cars honked. I walked up to a very kind lady in the group to enquire what this was all about. She said the group meets every Wednesday and has for years. In the beginning there had been WWII veterans but most of those were gone by now. War did not solve any problems, she said. I think we agreed about that, but honking for peace in Estes Park, Colorado, may not solve any problems, I said, and I then tried to tell her a little about islam and Middle East politics. We parted as friends. She will undoubtedly be back next Wednesday.
I then left Estes park and headed for the Rocky Mountain National Park or 'the Park', as it is called among the locals. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
(The WiFI at the Restway is overloaded probably because the campground is full due to the Cheyenne Frontier Days. So, once again I've had to resort to McDonald's, where I've just had a Big Breakfast and a large coffee. It's now 8.45 Sunday morning. At 10.30 Gina and I will go to the Cheyenne Stadium to experience the rodeo show.)
