Some friends from home spent this past week with us.
We had great weather and kept busy with sightseeing,
hiking, an outdoor concert and shopping.
Let me share a few photos.

After staying at The Stanley Hotel,
Stephen King wrote "The Shining".
Part of the TV mini-series was filmed here.

One day on a hike near Alberta Falls,
this bull elk stepped out in front of us - maybe 20 feet away!
We saw many of the Plein Artists.
Competition painting has been going on for over a week.

The USA Pro Cycling Challenge (2nd largest bicycle race in world), Stage 6, goes thru Estes Park tomorrow. That means a few thousand extra people will be around! We will be on foot all day - and hope we can see some of the bicyclists.
Yesterday we reconnected with a friend from a few years ago! Hope to find a time for a longer visit.
There are a number of events/concerts coming up that we plan to attend.
And there's lots more hiking. As John Muir said, "The mountains are calling and I must go."

Big Horn Sheep
Many small creatures!
