We saw so many things that I found interesting it could take me awhile to get them all categorized and ready to write about.
One of the first things I would like to bring to your attention is the Sylvan Dale Guest ranch sign. Of course I saw it the last time we went by in 2015 but this time I decided it worth snapping. I just read they are offering a February Romantic Getaway Package. Being only 7 miles west of Loveland, they aren't impacted by the highway construction in the Thompson Canyon region and if you're game for a cozy cabin with some snow for Valentine's Day an Airport Shuttle could be the way to go to get some R&R. Looks like a great place to visit so I'll post their contact information to get you going -
With our incline passage on windy roads higher into the mountains we were finally going to make it to Estes Park for our overnight stay.
Come back soon and see the highlights of our short daylight hours in and around Estes Park. I'll end here and wish you Have a Great Day!
