    We are headed to Estes Park Co. this weekend for a few days. Anyone have a good place that you can drive to see nature. We have a 4x4 so able to venture off a little.

    Try this site (rockymountainnationalpark.com/pages/four_wheeling.html) for info on FWD roads and scenic drives in the area of Estes Park. I hope you have a good time while your here in Colorado. For a lot of mining history and old buildings from the late 1800's visit Central City. There are FWD roads in that area and lots of scenery. [8D]

    Where are you staying in Estes park? We will be staying at the KOA there this weekend. Not going to be very warm but I guess that is what heat is for.

    Have a good time.......Estes Park is great, always takes me back to my childhood. We still get up there about once a year or so when we're visiting my Grandmother in Ft. Collins. Pretty much any road or hwy around there is going to offer up some beautiful and scenic driving....really can't go wrong. The town itself get's pretty crowded with tourists, but it's still a good time as far as I'm concerned; I get very nostalgic when I'm there.

    We had a great time as well. were a bit surprised when it started snowing after we arrived on Friday evening.

    Saturday morning was still a bit chilly but beautiful out. We went and rented a pontoon boat and hung out on the lake for a little bit.

    Even saw some elk lounging on the side of the trail near the lake
