a postcard from Rocky Mountain National Park...

Greetings from Estes Park, Colorado...where we are camped for a few days. 


We spent today in the national park...hiking to several lakes and waterfalls...
and breathing in the fresh mountain air. 

We did not meet up with any mountain sheep, bear, moose or elk...
but saw plenty of squirrels, chipmunks, deer, and coyotes. 

Oh...and we had our 'Colorado Rocky Mountain high'! 
Even the main road through the park climbs to 12,183 feet above sea level. 

It was a good day.

  13. What a good picture of you two in one of our favorite parts of the world. Finally, I can personally identify with one of your visits. We drove through Rocky Mt. National Park on several occasions, but never hiked through it. What fun! It looks like you are having postcard type weather too. Thanks for sharing. It brings back many fond memories.
