Estes Park Colorado, also known as the gateway entrance into Rocky Mountain National Park, is seriously a city I wish to call home one day, and now you know why when you see this. Driving down the road, this was a view out my front windshield, so naturally I had to stop and take a few shots….Hallett’s Peak is on the far right, and this would be one of my destinations for the day.

Thoughts welcomed!
