Our last day at Hot Sulphur Springs found us heading once more to Rocky Mountain National Park. Our goal was to travel the entire Trail Ridge Road, stop in Estes Park, then head back on the Old Fall River Road. Fall River Road is 11 miles of dirt, climbing from the bottom of the canyon up to the Trail Ridge Visitor Center. It is a one way road only.
|More wildlife. Here are two large bull elk just grazing away on the hillside.|
|We saw several herds of elk with their young.|
|The Stanley Racer, which won the land speed record in 1906 with a speed of 45 mph. This machine cost $850.|
|Just one of the many falls, cascading down the mountains, carrying the melting snows off the mountaintops.|
|We have completed the entire loop. Above is the Trail Ridge Visitor Center. |
Tomorrow we leave for Cheyenne, WY, and Cheyenne Frontier Days.
