CAMPING IN ESTES PARK, COLORADO

 

It is no secret that we love Colorado. If we are back in less than 5 months, that says something. Add to it, I have officially lost track of the number of times I have visited Colorado. This visit was different though. As we decided to go camping. I will be very honest with you, I am someone who prefers their hotel bed while traveling. But this camping trip has me intrigued. As first-time campers, I am  defintely proud of ourselves. I have taken mental notes on where to improve upon, or how to do things differently maybe next time.  

We were looking for dog-friendly trails and options in the Rockies. So while we love Rocky Mountain National Park, it was ruled out. Estes Park was our destination. We had planned on a hike to start off our day. Midway through the hike, we were met with a hailstorm. With a furry baby and one human one, we scrambled down the mountainous trail. 

We didn't have reservations for a  campsite which meant more driving around in the rain and hail. Finally managed a spot in a primitive campsite. The rain held off for some time, just as if to give us time to set up our tents and get dinner going. And yes, there were S'mores! 





Since the rain had held off for quite some time, decided to try our luck and hit a different trail! Golden hour in Roosevelt National Forest and soaking in the majestic Rockies! Did I mention we were in Bear Country!




Indulged in some campfire banter, before the rains came lashing down. Also, our tents were up on a slope so that there was no water logging during the rains. But it also meant that we went sliding down every few hours. Made for campsite jokes and laughter all night long!
