estes park, CO.

it’s hypothetically speaking day nine of our trip. we wave goodbye to utah, and head to colorado. for our very last night of camping [at least for this trip].

we arrive in estes park, CO.

to rain; which delays our setting up camp a bit. but if you have a little time to kill in estes park ..head to the pretty, white, old hotel on top of the hill for a drink. don’t mind the rumors of it being haunted. the stanley hotel.

a portion of the movie “dumb & dumber” was filmed at the stanley hotel.

while we were at the bar having a drink, [J] could not help himself from repeating jim carey’s famous line from the movie over & over. “no way? that’s great! we landed on the moon“. if you haven’t seen it, see here.

thankfully the weather cleared up. but by the time it did, we were starving. and had to stop for margaritas + mexican food before setting up camp. our least favorite campsite of the trip. we were camping on gravel. & the ground was impossible to put our stakes into. just a side note.
