Aspen Grove-Picnic Anyone?

Daily Photo:

When I saw this grove, I just had to get out and walk around in the knee-deep meadow grass. Up in the mountains of Colorado National Park, you occasionally find this kind of paradise and when you do, you savor in the moment. Imagine throwing down a blanket and having a picnic in a place like this. Beautiful crisp mountain air, some fried chicken, being with someone you love, carving your name in an Aspen tree. Don’t know if that’s legal, but it sounds cool!

Aspen Grove-Colorado National Park

Daily Photo:

Going west out of Estes Park you run into Colorado National Park. There are so many photo “ops”, it seemed like we were stopping all the time. Our goal was to reach Winter Park by sun down, but not before we trodded through grassy Aspen groves, climbed up to rocky waterfalls, enjoyed herds of elk, wandered aimlessly through bog fields, and breathed the thin wind struck air at the 10,000 foot summit over Milner Pass. Aspen trees with their distinctive white bark created a pleasant contrast to the pine tree forest that dominated the scenery.

St. Malo’s Chapel Near Estes Park

Daily Photo:

A short drive out of Estes Park, Colorado on S. Highway 7, you come across this beautiful church sitting on a big rock. A reflective pond sprawls out in front of you and the Colorado Rocky Mountains finish off the background. What more could you ask for, for a picture-perfect moment. The clouds were dramatic and the sun was beginning to set. This was such a pictuesque spot that we had to come back the next day and get a different perspective. Those photos I will share another time.
