Wandern gibt Hunger
Heute ging es in die Rockys. Die beste Strecke die Trail Ridge Road ist natürlich noch bis zum Memorial Day geschlossen 😒. Aber die netten Damen im Visitor Center haben mir gute Alternativen rausgesucht.
Der Bear Lake war teilweise noch gefroren und es lag Schnee auf dem Wanderweg ⛄️ ansonsten hatte ich ziemlich Glück mit dem Wetter. Kurz nachdem ich den Park verlassen habe, fing es an zu regnen 😋Read more
Purchases from a wood art stall at the Art & Crafts Market in Estes Park today. Putting our stamp on our coach !!
Also today Stew installed our outside sensor light we bought at the FMCA Rally.
Photo also shows Stew's toy Boogie Lights, they change colour, flash, fade, pretty cool.
Another great hike from Bear Lake trailhead, first stop Albert Falls then up a rugged trail to The Loch overlooking what's left of Andrew Glacier. We detoured on the way 'down ', which involved a lot of up again to Haiyaha Lake. Spectacular scenery everywhere, photos do not do it justice. Elk (9lb) and moose (8lb) antlers on show at ranger station modelled by Stew!!!
Great drive up the old road to the Alpine Visitor Centre at the top. It's dirt and dusty all the way, first through forests, switchbacking up alongside the Fall River, then out into the high meadows at the top around every corner is another amazing view of the Rocky Mountains. Wildlife sightings - couple of big horn sheep, a herd of elk, chipmunks, ground squirrels, 5 Colorado red tailed hawks, brilliant blue stellar jay, ravens harassing pikas and other smaller birds.Read more
Last day and more bopping to Irish band The Angry Brian's and the Scottish tribal drum, pipe and yes 'digeridoo' band Albannach. Made sure we got a seat for the jousting today, its for real and is brutal !!
Should have asked Vic where he got his tee shirt from as know a few people it would suit !!
Down from 10,000' to 5,000' and the climate change is dramatic it's in the 90's F today at Boyd Lake State Park. Good campground by a lake with sandy beaches and views of the mountains. All sorts of RVs here Friday from coaches, like ours, to fifth wheels, trailers and tents. Cycle round the lake was amazing. Americans know how to do beach, gazebos, barbecues, ball games, inflatables, power boats and jet skis. Lots of geese, gulls, egrets , herons and even saw a white pelican.Read more
First sojourn into RMNP, first stop Visitor Centre to get maps and trail info then we drove round a loop back into Estes Park, stopping to take in the marvellous views. Longs Peak is the impressive highest peak in RMNP. Met Rob & Kathleen and their 'Piggyback' camper. They have a ranch on the US86 in Kiowa, which coincidentally is the road we drove to Denver !! Enjoyed the bluebirds and magpies.
