Bear Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park
around 7 - 7:30 PM 
We didn't take this one!
I took this one!

Estes Park Farmers Market
A market with a view!

Great food but a bit expensive!

 Downtown Estes Park
Near west end

 Old Man Mountain
Much of our grad school staff training took place at Old Man Mountain Retreat Center.
Would you believe that both of us belayed that sheer face? True fact! It was about 40 years ago!
(Belaying is mountain climbing with ropes.)

  1. You saw a bear! We didn't see a single bear when we were there 3 years ago. I'd forgotten how Big Thompson runs right through town. I love your picture of Bear Lake ... and the one of you two, as well.

  2. Sure looks like you two are enjoying your visit to Colorado! It's such a beautiful state and there is so much to do here. Have fun!
