Rocky Mountain Calling

About 60 miles north west of Denver sitting at the base of massive granite peaks in a valley carved long ago by the slow creep of a glacier lies the picturesque mountain town of Estes Colorado.

From 5-star resorts and romantic getaways to adventure packed days and family fun events and attractions this winter wonderland offers a slice of winter to anyone willing to brave the winding mountain roads that switchback up to it's 7,000+ foot elevation.

There's nothing quite like rounding those final turns into Estes Park. #estespark #colorado

Get away from the madness of the holiday season and snuggle up with your honey next to a warm fireplace in a rustic log cabin.

The Rockies glow during afternoon sunsets making Estes a great destination for amateur and professional photographers alike.

Outdoor lovers will have their hands full with skiing, snowshoeing, mountaineering, ice climbing, and a whole host of other winter activities. Estes sits between the Rocky Mountain National Park and the Roosevelt National Forest, this is a true outdoors paradise.

If you're after a good spook or a fancy hotel be sure to check out The Stanley Hotel, the inspiration for The Overlook Hotel in the infamous Steven King thriller The Shining.
