Arrival in Estes Park

Arrival in Estes Park

We welcomed October 1 driving from Colby, KS, to Estes Park, CO, to join Annette and Larry for our anniversary vacation/ publishing conference. We agreed last summer (at our 50th and their 15th) to meet this October for the Elk Fest! Estes Park is one of Nancy's very favorite vacation spots.

For this special event, we are staying at our favorite condos right on Fall River. Here was my first impression, out the back deck.

Looking down a bit, you can see the rippling water, small fall,  just out the back deck.

That was to the left, here is to the right...

Looking back up to the condo... our bedroom door on the left...

Larry will grill chicken on the gas grill on the right, one night...

We'll visit two or three parts of Rocky Mountain National Park over the next few day. 

The elk walk right through the yard, coming down from the mountain, and going back up... it is that time of year!!!

It was a very good day!  ;-)
