Driving up the mountains their was a crazy amount of haze that was a real bummer. The fires around us from other states have left our state pretty hazy and unfortunately I didn't get any photos that were worth sharing. However, as soon as we got up to Estes and started wandering around we had a few little photo opportunities that we just couldn't pass up.

These metal sculptures were fun for the kids to look at and some of them were really silly. Slightly out of our budget or we would have came home with a giant rooster.
We definitely did a bit of shopping. The kids fell in love with those Russian Nesting Dolls, the hubby bought a jacket and I grabbed up a great little purse but my most favorite purchases were the Salt Water Taffy and the Ice Cream!
We had a very nice day and minor complaints from the tiny folks in our lives. They were on a sugar high probably from the amount of candy, taffy and ice cream we consumed but they still slept great! I am always so thankful for the fact that we only live a hop, skip and a jump away from some of the most beautiful mountains and great mountain towns in the world.
Have you been to Estes Park?
