Another short post, folks. Hopefully I'm on the road to recovery from what turned out to be bronchitis, but I'm really feeling rocky and not yet ready to rumble. Thinking relaxing thoughts about beautiful places can't hurt, right?
I have been to several national parks across the country, but one that takes my breath away every time I visit is only forty-five minutes from my house: Rocky Mountain National Park. The National Park Service website has an excellent photos and multimedia page if you want to see great pictures.
One time we were driving along Trail Ridge Road in August when it suddenly began to snow real hard and cars were sliding off the road. And then about a mile further on, there was no snow, the roads were dry, and the sun was shining. We've seen mountain sheep, elk, and at least one coyote. The best part, however, are the stunning views. Consider this park highly recommended.
