With a break between weddings I decided to take advantage of my downtime and drove to Estes Park, Colorado. My journey began by avoiding the standard I-70 route and instead I headed up to the northern part of Kansas and took the back roads into Colorado.
Travelling through small towns and gorgeous wheat fields as far as the eye can see I sometimes forget how gorgeous Kansas really is. I drove straight through and arrived in Estes Park in about 12 hours. Driving into the Rocky Mountains was a bit precarious as I arrived at night just in time for a thunderstorm.
When I woke up the next morning I was greeted by the legendary snow capped mountains just outside my window. I spent the next four days hiking the various trails at Rocky Mountain National Park. I had stepped up my exercise program and felt I was fairly well prepared for the rigorous journey but soon found out I was a babe in the woods. Being constantly passed on the trails is one thing but when they’re senior citizens it starts getting personal.
It was a glorious trip. Everyone keeps asking me did I find the answers to life in those mountains. I was even having dinner with my good friends Michael Beers and Paul McMillian and Michael would not let any conversation proceed until I shared some great revelation I acquired. I didn’t need to go to the Rocky Mountains to find the answer to life. You can’t beat family, friends and tacos!!!!
