Driving from Alamosa to Estes Park was a bit of an adventure. Not only was it a Sunday but along the way we ran into a road closure caused by a wild fire. That caused us to back track and end up driving through Boulder,
Now, I always liked Boulder, but Boulder on a Sunday when the temperature tops 100 is not where I planned to be.
After Checking in at our Inn we headed through Rocky Mountain National Park to do some grocery shopping in Estes Park. The route was a loop and not really necessary… Other than I just wanted to drive into the park on our first day.
