Amazing time in this infamously haunted hotel, deep in the Rocky Mountains.
We stayed in the Room which inspired Stephen King to write We spotted this beauty on our hike to Gem lake. It is a 1.7 mile hike up to the small but beautiful lake.
It is medium difficulty, be prepared to sweat in the heat.
This spot is the BEST place to go if you know that the main entrance to the park has a long line of cars and that there is unlikely to be anywhere to park your car. The trail has less people than anywhere near the main entrance.
#hiking The most stunning firework show I have ever been to was at Lake Estes.
The show starts at 9:30pm. The parking lot is completely full by 6pm, so park early in the day (as close as possible to the main road entrance) and spend the day hiking near the lake or biking around it.
Find a spot to set up your chairs as close to the lake as possible. It can easily take an hour to get out of the parking lot after the show if you aren't parked near the entrance.

The park where this was taken is a beautiful 3.7 mile trail with places for fishing and cooking out. A lot of people were walking and tons of families trying their luck at catching a muskie.
A special thanks to Geoeginia Hill for showing off this park. I Had no clue this park was here when I made the trip plans. It was a great way to end the day. Tons of dragonflies at Sprague Lake in Estes park. A gorgeous place for an easy one hour walk around a lake.

They offer buffalo, elk, and, of course beef too. Great little restaurant on the way to the mountains! The Stanley Hotel sits in Estes Park, Co, with beautiful mountains as a backdrop. It was somewhat creepy, even from the outside, but that was mostly due to it's reputation coloring my perceptions before I even saw it.

So beautiful in the snow Spooky Places in the mountains Redrum is only a small part of the Stanley Hotel's legendary repute. It's been gussied up nicely, features comfy rooms with baths, restaurant and bar, Eat your heart out, Chipotle and Qdoba! This is a real burrito! This is legit, authentic Mexican food!!! The best local shop we found in Estes Park was Kind Coffee, an environmentally-friendly coffeehouse with great space for using wi-fi or enjoying breakfast by the river. If you’re in town, I highly recommend skipping the Starbucks down the street and coming here.
