My Body is Home But..........

My head and heart are still in the Rockies! Sunday we went up the mountain to Estes Park and my sister made ME drive up the mountain! Me, who wanted to gawk in wonder, me who had never been there, me who had never driven those twisty type roads! Ha! It was all good and we did make it to the top, alive!

The scenery was awesome and can only be described as AWESOME and inspiring!! It was like being in church as I stared at the beauty and wonder of it all!! I was only disappointed by the fact that we did not see an elk or big horn sheep one! We did,however, see a few fly fisherman in the Big Thompson that runs along the road all they way up the mountain and lots of tourists!! LOL!

One fun spot to see in Estes Park is the Stanley Hotel home to many ghosts and the location for the shooting of the mini-series The Shining. The hotel was the inspiration for Stephen King to write his famous novel! He got the inspiration while he and his wife were guests at the hotel. This was also the site for the Danbury Hotel in the movie Dumb and Dumber! Some famous guests include: the Titanic survivor Margaret Brown, John Philip Sousa, Theodore Roosevelt, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and a variety of Hollywood personalities. I did not see a ghost or anyone famous! Ha!

Then there were the mountains!! Look at these and tell me that God does not exist!! Seriously folks, this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and I have been lots of places but none compare to this, in my humble opinion!!







All I can say is WOW! What about you?
