Driving to California - Rocky Mountain National Park
August 1, 2008
There are still plenty of elk hanging out in Estes Park this morning over by the Stanley Hotel. Monica has been looking forward to visiting the hotel given her love of dark horror stories.
The area around Gem Lake is as beautiful as I remember from our days in Boulder.
Then it's the drive on Trail Ridge Road into Rocky Mountain National Park. Now that's a great road!
Charlotte was looking forward to some hiking in the area, but the kids are in a rush to head home. Looks like the short walk to the observation area is going to be the extent of the hiking.
A herd of elk say goodbye as our travelers head out of the park and continue their westward trek home.
