We had another wonderful day with family. We took Jared to Rocky Mountain National Park. We have been several times, but this was Jared's first visit. It is now his favorite park. :-)

He loved the little town of Estes Park, Colorado too. We stopped in Estes Park for Indian food at the Nepal Indian Restaurant for a luncheon buffet. We also took pictures of the huge hotel where "The Shining" was filmed.

When we got to the park entrance we were told only 7 miles of the park was open. We had hoped to see more, but we were not disappointed with what we saw, it was awesome. Critter count for the day was one huge elk, hundreds of prairie dogs and a few deer.

I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for more from Colorado.
