Despite a few visits into the eastern portion of Rocky that I shared on FaceBook and Instagram since we arrived in Estes Park in mid-May, this is the first blog post of 2019 about our beloved Rocky Mountain National Park.
On Friday, May 3rd, we had a spectacular weather day in Buena Vista, Colorado (BV); high about 60 degrees and brilliant sunshine. This was fortunate since we had decided to break out the motorcycles for the first time since San Antonio, but of course, we had checked the weather first to choose this beautiful day. 🙂
If you have been following this site for any length of time, you probably know that the hubs and I have been traveling by motorcycle, since the late 1990s, and via RV and motorcycle, since 2015. From the time we first met, the one constant in our lives has been that we LOVE to travel. Well, we have taken that love to a new extent, and I am going to tell you all about it, finally. But first, a little history.
In late August 2018, a long-time friend of Jerry’s, Pete, and his wife Cathy came to visit us in Estes Park from the DC area. Pete and Jerry had visited the Estes area 40+ years earlier, so it was a bit of a nostalgic visit for them both. We were so grateful to have so many dear friends and family visit during our time in Estes Park…hopefully sharing our experiences there ensures those visits will continue during our 2019 stay as well! 🙂
It has been a long time in coming, but here is the ‘rest of the story’ about our ride from Estes Park to Utah and western Colorado, back in August of 2018.
I am interrupting my three-part series about our long weekend adventure to Utah to bring you a near-real-time update. I will pick up later and finish all the posts about the fun we had this summer…soon! We left Estes Park, Colorado, and Rocky Mountain National Park on Monday, and suffice it to say, we are sad about that! But this last week and the whole summer has been magical. I will try to share the feeling here.
