Friday in Colorado

3 Aug

To start off our Friday in Colorado, we went to breakfast at one of my favorite places from college (still yummy) and then went to the New Belgium Brewery. The brewery is wind powered, employee owned and the tastings are complimentary but we did spend some money on t-shirts.

Kerry decided Colorado beer is acceptable (while texting friends in DC that he was having beer and they were at work).

On the way to our new hotel that was near the wedding location- we drove through Estes Park. We stopped at the Stanley Hotel to see the great views and I learned that Kerry has never seen The Shining. The gift shop sold the movie, redrum coffee mugs and there were other tributes to Jack Nicholson and the ghosts. Our friend Kelley claims the place is completely haunted but in the middle of the day it is really pretty and peaceful.

We arrived at our new hotel and after two days of non-stop activity- we crashed before 9pm. Some of you may feel that is absolutely pathetic but we were quite all right with it.

    I’ve never seen The Shining either. Was it filmed at that hotel?

    Love your pictures!
