I want to write about my journey here --- I was so exhausted. Looking for a place to stay. I tried all the parks and such, Cyn that you so graciously gave the website for. No showers! and man oh man did I need a shower ;)
A lot of construction is going on on a main road Bear Creek Road in Rocky Mountain National Park and some areas are closed. I went to the visitor center and asked if I could just park there. no. Found a little hospital and was going to take a chance there but I reeeeally wanted a shower. Stopped at three different places - not open until May 12th!
The place I found has a history that I want to blog about.... but for right now? I want to share this gorgeous place. shee boy
I've seen lots of things outside my motel rooms in my years... but never an Elk just casually walking down the road ... cars going by. He knows he has the right of way. I liked to have spilled m'coffee! I have a huge wide window and a front deck with glass ... I see a car slow down and a furry legged thing and it's an ELK ... saw some coming up yesterday ... blocked the road they did.. HAHaaaa..... a pickemup scared 'em off. I guess he's used to the Elk taking over the road and this guy was having none of it. I hope you can enlarge this enough to see the guy... what fun!
The view from my side window. I'm sitting here typing with this view. :D The screen fell off and this is a bright, this morning picture. The Fall River looks like sunshine instead of water! Makes glorious sounds tumbling over huge rocks and little rocks and turning corners.... heaven
From My deck.. I have the deck door open ... the sounds from this plus the window being open on the side? please...
My room.... :D
My supper last night --- I had gone to Whole Foods in Broomfield outside of Boulder. I wanted to pick up a few staples - m'fig bars, fruit and nuts. Good ol Yerba Mate green tea... I got a little slice of Brie - it tastes better at room temperature, to me. If I had known I was going to find this place... I would have bought accordingly. I have a microwave and fridge. But this is great. I don't even want to leave to go into town to get anything. This is just heaven.
I wish I could find a place like this to rent forever ... my kind of place. I've always like Estes Park.
I got this room for a three night kinda deal... pay for two nights then the third is free... right. Sooooo for a grand total of $164.56 ... I have paradise for three nights and three days.
After this? I can go a bit between showers and will try one of the no - bath places... I dunno though... I'm not much of a wilderness - primitive type kid. who knows what I am... I change hourly... /nobigdeal
