Greetings from Estes Park, Colorado!
September 19, 2013
The town of Estes Park is doing great. I know many of you are wondering how we are doing. (Thanks so much for all the wonderful emails and calls.) In just one week since the floods, Estes Park has recovered remarkably. The people of Estes Park are amazing, strong and resilient. Life is nearly back to normal in the downtown area and in the Estes valley. The stores are open for business and hotels and restaurants are up and running. We now have two highways open for traffic and there are no-restrictions on travel. (No worries...we have plenty of food, gas and clean water) Everyone is welcome to return to Estes Park and we welcome you back! Please come and visit! Trail Ridge Road is open and the Peak to Peak Highway is open from I-70 all the way to Estes Park. The hiking trails on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park are open and the east side trails will be opening up very soon. The national park just needs some time to check trails for damage and stability.
