Beautiful, just beautiful

This is a picture I snapped while searching for a friend's house. The bad news is that I was lost; the good news is that I would have missed this scene if I hadn't been lost.

Be sure to check my "tips" below for more photos and information.

Yes there is a place to eat & to stay

This sign asks you to drop in for a nice meal. Just don't assume that it is inexpensive since it is in a small village.

So how do you get there?

From Loveland, Colorado, head west into the Big Thompson Canyon. At the village of Drake, turn right onto a paved road. In only a few miles you will be in Glen Haven. After you continue west, you will soon arrive in Estes Park.

WARNING: The road has sharp switchbacks which are perfectly fine for cars. However I would never attempt this road in a motor home or in a vehicle pulling a trailer.
