You’re WHERE?!

Estes Park, CO – A few miles from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.  Yeah, I know, that’s WAY south of Billings, MT and, no, I didn’t get lost.  Since neither Rachel nor I have ever crossed the Colorado Rockies (…flying over in a plane doesn’t count), never mind doing so on a bike, we decided to take a slight detour and do a southern loop.  We just got here and the scenery coming in through Roosevelt National Forest was eye popping, and literally every corner we went around (…and there were a LOT of corners!) we were busy looking back & forth trying to take it all in. We stayed off the Interstates today, with one short exception:  Leaving Sundance we caught Route 585 over to US-85 South, and stayed on that all the way through WY, until it merged with I-25 just before Cheyenne, WY.  We stayed on I-25 for about 50 miles, then caught US-34 West to Estes Park.  The picture above is from the parking lot of our motel by our room; but it really doesn’t do the scenic beauty of this area justice.

    I am totally enjoying reading this blog about your trip, which is on my bucket list. Thank-You for the pictures also. But, when you get a chance could you please let us know motels & motel rates of where you spent the night? Thank-You

      Generally tried to keep hotels/motels in the $50-75 range (I essentially just need a place with a clean bed and bathroom, though Internet & extra amenities are always welcome); but sometimes in a given area, that wasn’t possible. Would be glad to run down a list of everywhere I stayed when I get a chance. 😉
