Motorcycle Wanderings, General Travel, and a Weird Mix of Other Stuff

Rocky Mountain National Park

We arrived safely yesterday. Shannon met us at the airport, which made the arrival extra-sweet. We’ve both really missed that kid.

Driving into the Mountains

Our house is in Estes Park, which is about two hours from the airport. We hadn’t eaten all day, so we stopped for a quick bite at Chick Fil-a. Then it was back into our big-ass car (that’s another story) and on to Estes Park.

View from Our Deck

The mountains are beautiful, but Estes Park, as with most communities that serve as gateways to big national parks, is a bit of a tourist trap.

After we got settled into our house, I went to the grocery store. It was crazy busy. But then, it is Labor Day Weekend.

Annelies and Yves arrived around 8:30 or so and we had a nice dinner. We were all pretty beat and went to bed relatively early.

This is what I saw when I woke up…


Our first stop of the day will be the visitor’s center at Rocky Mountain National Park for new sweatshirts.

For now, I need more coffee…

    LOL. I know I’m in a different part of the world when I spend several minutes staring at that picture of the thermometer going “Where is the reading? I can’t see it!” … and then realizing….”OHHHH….I’m not looking low enough. There it is!” Oof! Brr!! That’s some cold! The scenery looks beautiful though! Hope you’re all nice and bundled!

      Jade, you made all of us laugh! It warmed up nicely for us. It’s been a beautiful day.
