On the first day we went to Rocky Mountain National Park. We saw lots of Elk and snow. I even brought Frankie Pickle with me. My Mom took my picture with Frankie at the Continental Divide.
I liked seeing the flowers and snow way up high in the mountains. This is called the tundra. My Mom and I looked up tundra on the internet so we could learn more about it. In the tundra the trees do not grow because of the high altitude. It is a lot colder up there too.
We ate at the lodge a lot. We could see our cabin from the porch where we ate.
There is this giant old hotel called the Stanley Hotel. We went on a tour. The tour lady told us all kinds of stories about ghosts in the hotel. I was scared when she told us a story about a cowboy ghost on the 4th floor. My Dad and I also got into a closet where they say Lord Dunraven (he owned all of the land around Estes Park a long time ago) has been seen and felt. It was freaky.
They had these funny painted things I put my head in. It looked like I was a cowboy.
Tomorrow we are going home. I am excited to get home so I can watch the Disney Channel anytime I want, see Charlie my dog and have pretend wars with all my toys at home.
I have had a SUPER time in Estes Park and can't wait to come back again.
