Estes Park


In September we were able to take a trip up to Estes Park. We wanted to go up and see the Elk and the leaves changing. We haven't ever really taken a day trip any where and thought it would be a fun family outing. IT TOTALLY WAS. We drove all the way up to the top of Trail Ridge Road. A very fun ride especially since we were able to take Derek's mustang because it hadn't started snowing yet! Kenzie got altitude sickness (we are pretty sure) she was totally having a great time in Estes Park…then when we got to the top of the mountain she wouldn't hardly move and didn't even want to walk just be held and had a little bit of a fever…WEIRD…then when we got to the bottom she was fine. We loved this trip together and had a ton of fun walking around main street Estes Park. I am not going to lie….there was an AWESOME taffy shop that had melt in your mouth salt water taffy (one of my weaknesses) and I definitely ate the whole bag of taffy. IT WAS AWESOME. Here are the pictures from our trip!
