“No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied – it speaks in silence to the very core of your being” (Ansel Adams)
Estes Park Colorado is the perfect getaway and vacation spot on your way to Rocky Mountain National Park or even as a destination itself. You will enjoy great lodging, shopping, and adventures and usually you will spot wildlife as you walk or drive through the area. The park is always open and you will find amazing scenery, snowshoeing, tubing, or any number of winter activities you seek. The park becomes even more spectacular as spring begins to appear. Visitors will see more and more of the native animals such as elk, deer, big horn sheep, coyote, and birds of all kinds. Soon more of the park’s roads will open and that means more hiking trails and nature area will open. Stop at the visitor centers and set ranger led hikes if time allows. Only a short drive from Denver and Fort Collins, this wonderful escape will captivate your soul and soothe your spirit. Estes Park Video
