We traveled the Peak to Peak Highway from Estes Park to I-70. The roadway provides mountain vistas of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker and many others. While Big Thompson Canyon is a treat, this drive is far superior. It is the slow route that parallels I-25, and is well worth the time. You pass through interesting communities like Nederland where there is an annual Frozen Dead Guy Festival. For a great lunch or dinner experience, stop by the Bald Pate Inn just south of Estes Park (reservation recommended).
