I got up this morning before the crack of dawn and packed up my room at the Residence Inn and left at 05:00.

The drive out was probably one of the most scenic I have ever done. Instead of writing about it look at the pics.

I could not find a place to stay so I booked a place in Rico Called the Rico Hotel Mountain Lodge. . I hope the accommodation on the rest of my trip is better.
The Food was ok (Although they advertise that it is a 4 Star Kitchen) but compared to say the White Chocolate Grill in Denver it is over priced and sort of bland.

The Room was tiny It could barely fit the queen size bed that was in there. But that is enough said look at the pictures.
