So, I decided to drive them up to the top of Rocky Mountain National Park.....to where there is STILL snow!!!
It's a gorgeous drive any day.....but if you are 62, did you know you can get a lifetime pass to all of the National Parks for just $10? Gary got his this week!!! And I do think their future vacation plans will include a few more National Parks!
It's been a cold, wet summer here in Colorado and we still have "snow fields" up high. Now - everywhere else, if snow stays on the ground year round, it's called a "glacier". But here - no- they are just snow fields!
We got to the top, above timber line, where there is nothing but timber and wind. About 40 degrees. The wind chill factor probably brought it down to about 30. Carol finally admitted she was cool!
If you take the drive, stop in Estes park at the taffy place. They've been pulling taffy since at least 1965 - the first time dad brought us out here on vacation. It hasn't changed a bit....and it still tastes just as good!
