Peak to Peak Highway September 22, 2009
This morning was cloudy and cold with snow still on the ground. We started later than usual and I had a chance to walk around the area and see the effects of an early autumn snow. Our first stop was Red Rocks Park. It‘s a famous natural amphitheatre made from ---red rocks. We also found a Colorado Visitor’s Center and a nice person who helped us route our drive to RMNP. Colorado has many scenic byways and we took one to Estes Park. It was cloudy and snow fell most of the way. Patches of gold aspen dotted the mountainsides here and there. Northern CO is not known for their aspens groves like southwest CO is. We got to Estes Park, gateway to the eastern entrance of RMNP in the late afternoon and found a campground (no WalMarts here).
