We started out at Gunbarrel where we were staying - made a whole day of the RMNP drive through Lyons - had a meal at Oskar Blues, Estes - stopped for a hot drink at the Stanley Hotel - Bear Lake - it was frozen over and looked fabulous. Back to Boulder via the Peak to Peak stopping off at Nederland for a meal. It was a perfect days outing for us and if we seniors from Australia can manage the roads in a hire car - driving on the opposite side of the road - then anyone can. Its a beautiful scenic drive well worth doing.
