One of the things I told my brother-in law that I wanted to do while in Colorado was "see the touristy things". Since we were only there for 4 days, we didn't want to spend our entire trip traveling. We headed up through Estes Park and up Trail Ridge for breathtaking views of the mountains, stopped at the Allevian Fan for a hike, and even stopped by the Stanley. It was a great way to see the mountains in one day! I was thrilled! Lots of photo ops, and we even saw Elk!

Wonderful drive through Rocky Mountains. Great views at all heights and with lots of different things to see - not only the mountain views but beaver ponds, wildlife (we say lots of elk, bighorn sheep and marmots), and lakes. Lots of easy to use pull-off points, with good information boards. Plenty of parking. Good restroom facilities.

LOVE the trip over Trail Ridge Road. We have done this trip many times and will continue to enjoy it many times more. The mountains, the clouds and the views are always new!!

Fun road to drive. A couple of fun hikes at stops on the drive. Granby at the end is a great place to eat a pizza for lunch.

BE SURE that you travel the entire Trail Ridge Road. It is one of the benchmark vacation experiences in the United States.
