Trail Ridge Road - possibly one of the most spectacular drives you will ever take - it is the highest (12,000 ft ) highway in the US, and takes you way above the tree line to see sweeping panoramas of the Rocky Mountain National Park. We went from a temperature of about 72 to 34 in less than an hour driving up to the Alpine Visitor Center. We were disappointed that was as far as we could go given some time restrictions we were on. We had wanted to cross the Continential Divide and reach Grand Lake before heading back but the sun was setting and we had to get back to Denver. / i think it was freaking mom out a bit that i was climbing up here. i have to admit it was a little bit scary, but worth it for the view. right mom?

If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
