Rocky Mountain - Estes Park 10-19-2011

We got the tourist welcome...
"If you take our picture, we'll take yours"

This time I'm posting our scenic day-trip to Estes Park, CO here on my website before I post to Facebook!  I'm between classes this week, and we are having some perfectly awesome fall days here in Denver, so hubby and I gave some extra food to the pets, refreshed the water dishes, and off we ran for the hills of Highway 119 through the canyons and up 14,000 feet into the national forests of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

I took over 100 pictures today.
These are some of my favorites.

Hubby (right) waits for me to join him to walk across this bridge.

We found more photo ops on the way home as it was getting dark. When you drive in the mountains, the view is never the same, and coming back is as different as day and night.  A "Rocky" at sunset.

OH, but there was more to this picture than of the setting sun...See the next photo!

Princess, Your Highness, and Ebony, came to greet us!

What else you got?

Me too please...

Funny thing...We didn't know about the horses. We were looking for THIS!
Crags View Geocache!!!!  (Sounds like Craig)

We left the shoe, but added some nice swag to this one.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Estes Park trip without Elk!
We saw at least 25 ladies in this herd.

Now who put that rock up there? And, why the ugly face?
Picnic anyone?
There's gold somewhere under that mountain stream!!!

There's always more mountains to climb tomorrow...

Take Care on the Journey
Your friend in life,
