We started our morning with a great breakfast and hopped in the car to head from Colorado Springs towards Estes Park.
The drive through the mountains was gorgeous to our campsite just outside of Estes Park. After setting up camp and getting groceries to do some cooking, Mr. B got a fire going. We bought pie irons for the trip and they turned out to be a great purchase!
We had tuna melts for dinner which were quite tasty. And of course there were s’mores while watching the amazing sunset.
We survived our first night in the tent and got up early to check out the area around the campground. We headed to Rocky Mountain National Park and did some exploring. We then headed into Estes Park and grabbed drinks and dinner.
As we were walking down the street, we happened upon this shipping container which had 60 or so beers on tap. It was called The Barrel and was a great concept.
There was more s’more making back at the campground and another night of great sleep! We woke up on Thursday with a deer outside of our tent. Pretty awesome to be that close to nature.
We headed back to Rock Mountain National Park for Mr. B to do some fly fishing before it got too crowded.
He didn’t catch anything, but we did capture one of my favorite pictures from our vacation.
We then headed out on a hike to Alberta Falls in the park. It was a bit of a tough hike due to the elevation, but completely worth it! So beautiful and photos don’t even do it justice!
The hike back to the car was more difficult as the last half of it was uphill, but we did it and I earned my trail tag! Which I picked up in town on our way out, along with some delicious ice cream!
We were then back in the car and headed to Denver for Fitbloggin!
The time spent in Estes Park was probably my favorite part of our #bzheadwest vacation! I love camping and all things nature! It was hard to pack up the tent and leave!
Do you enjoy camping? What is your favorite thing to cook over a campfire?
