Stop and take a look at this beautiful chapel just South of Estes Park on Hwy 7. It survived the Flood of 2013 and the Pope visited it in 1993.

Its a nice drive. Just wish it was a circle. I would stop and eat somewhere next time instead of just going at it. Bring some RMJ.

It snowed a couple days before we arrived and the roads were clearing but still a lil slick. We parked and walked some. Then we stopped at a couple trails and hiked with kids. It was fun.

St. Malo's Church is a beautiful sight: a rock church perched on a knoll with awesome mountain scenery as a backdrop.

This was a beautiful drive that had me constantly pulling over to take it all in. I was lucky to be there while the leaves were changing so there was a lot to see. The snow covered mountains in the distance took my breath away. If you're short on time, this may not be the activity for you but if... More

The drive offered some good scenery but not enough pull off places. The view to the snow covered peaks was spectacular. Driving along here beside the huge rocks you can see why they are called the Rocky Mountqins.

Drove from Estes Park to Idaho Springs. The color was beautiful and the drive during the week is not crowded with lookers. Several great photo ops on the way plus Nederland is an interesting stop to stretch ones legs. Fall in the Rockies is great.

We drove the Peak to Peak from North to South, while hauling our 30 ft 5th wheel. This was not a problem, but the elevations raise from about 4500 ft to over 9000 ft. The drive up the Big Thompson River from Loveland was spectacular and we saw mountain sheep. We did the drive in Oct 2014 after a lot... More
