Estes Park

Estes Park is a small village nestled in the north central mountains of Colorado. The earliest settlers were homesteaders who arrived to "prove up" in the 1870s and soon discovered that providing lodging and entertainment for outdoor adventurers and tourists looking for a respite from city life could provide a more reliable revenue stream than farming and ranching. By 1905, the town was platted and several hotels provided modern accommodations. When Rocky Mountain National Park was created in 1915, Estes Park became the eastern gateway and continues to be the first stop for approximately 2.5 million visitors annually. From an initial population of less than 200, the town has grown to almost 10,000 year-round residents, many of whom still make their living providing goods and services to visitors from as near as Denver and as far away as Nepal.

Back from an amazing trip with my husband to celebrate our 10th anniversary 💕 We stayed in Estes Park and had some incredible Rocky Mountain adventures. First fly fishing & then hiking to 10,000ft!

Books.Bottles.and.Babies The hike included waterfalls, scenic views, microspikes through snow & ice, and snowshoeing 1/2 mi over several feet of snow to eat lunch above the falls! Thanks to this very active week I destroyed my fitness goal of 8mi for the week (I got almost 30!!😲) Unfortunately, I didn't read at all so I have some catching up to do this weekend!! #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn 6mo
