Rocky Mountain

Today we woke up in Estes Park, CO. We spent most of the day in Rocky Mountain National Park.

The skies were overcast, but I was still able to get some interesting shots.

Once again, my penchant for all things flowing water is evident..

After a long day in the park, we headed down out of the mountains back into town for dinner..

And located the doggie park so Ike could run around like an idiot with other dogs for awhile.. (sorry, no photo)

Another day, another sunset…which we tried to capture back up in the park, but the clouds didn’t cooperate..

..not too bad. Tomorrow, we start the trek back east. First stop, North Platte, NE.
