Rocky Mountain High, Colorado (Part Two)

When I left you at the end of Part One, we had driven from Denver to Idaho Springs, visited Georgetown, and were on our way to Estes Park.


What a wonderful place!  I visited Estes Park in the 60's, 70's, and now 2013.  It is a tourist town with a small town feel.  Tourists are always welcome as a part of the community.  We were there this time to visit family and meet some new friends.  We pretended we were natives, but got in a little 'tourist time'!

Highlights of this tourist:



Brad Fitch (CowboyBrad.com) one-man show in Performance Park. We were outside under the Western sky when Brad sang 'Rocky Mountain High' (Colorado State song) for us and an audience of about 350.


 





 Taking a stroll on the
Copeland Falls Trail at Wild Basin,
Rocky Mountain National Park.  
I will take you on the trail in Part Three: Rocky Mountain High...Walking a Trail at 7500 feet.


After leaving the trail we made a quick stop at the Baldpate Inn, a favorite stop for all tourists. It is best known for its collection of keys:
These keys have been sent or left here
by visitors for all over the world.
I adopted a key that had lost its tag.
It will be placed in the Arkansas Section
of the ceiling of tags.


Sat on the porch 
for a few minutes.
Chuck caught a
hummingbird in flight.

Highlight of the trip - just hanging out with family and friends.  Hanging out for Chuck meant a chance to 'jam' with Cowboy Brad while the rest of us enjoyed a concert. 



Someone said (not sure who?):
"All good things must come to an end."
If that is true-Our end of this good thing was 
a beautiful Colorado sunset.


Part Three is coming....
