On Monday, July 25th, K.C. and I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather to drive through the Rocky Mountain National Park and visit Grand Lake on the western slope of the Continental Divide. The trip was 170 miles in 6½ hours. The following map shows our complete route.
This first group of photos shows our ride from Lyons to Estes Park along US-36, with a stop at the historic Stanley Hotel, and then over Trail Ridge Road through the Park to the other side of the Divide.
