Who let the teenagers out?

           Last week my friend Devon and I found ourselves on an unexpected rookie backcountry adventure. Having both been described as "reckless and stubborn" she is my ideal exploring buddy, however this time I can truly say we did not know what we were getting ourselves into. After hiking to Lake Ypsilon, we began to follow a steep battered trail up past a waterfall.

Tips for Finding Last Minute Summer Lodging in Estes Park

With 3 million visitors each year, summers are busy around Rocky Mountain National Park. Many families return year after year because it’s such a special place, and book their lodging a year in advance.

If you find yourself wanting to put together a last minute summer visit to the mountains, you might discover it’s not so easy to find a place to stay because many lodges are already booked during the “high” season, especially during July and August.
