Another Beautiful Day!

A great day was spent at Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.  

Estes Park is a town located outside of Rocky Mountain National Park.  It is a very popular summer resort.  There are shops, restaurants and more shops.

Rocky Mountain National Park is in the north-central region of the state of Colorado.  The park features majestic mountain views, mountain lakes, a variety of wildlife(such as elk, moose, eagles, big horn sheep, etc.), climate change(being at 60 degrees at 8,000 ft to 48 degrees at 12,000 ft) from wooded forests to mountain tundra.  The park was established in January 1915 and last year celebrated 100 years.

If you have never been to a National Park, you need to add one to your list.  National Parks do  tell the story of our great country and helps you to get in touch with nature.
  
I have attached 3 photos from today to show you what you are missing.
