I couldn’t resist posting this precious photograph of this young ram looking in our bedroom window here in Estes Park. They love to munch the grass right along the side of the house that doesn’t get hit with snow. And everyone once in a while they look up. I just happened to be enjoying watching him and had my camera ready.

He’s just adorable, don’t you think?

    Priceless and so handsome, Mel. Hard to think of it as sheep in view of his size which is more that of a deer.

    We will be staying in Loveland from July 8th and leave on the e20th of July. We are having a hard time, even when we call the park service, finding out the information we need. We like trails that are at least a minimum of 3 miles and up and up but when I call the park service they say they are busy and constantly put me on hold. How far is it to the Colorado River Trailhead, Green mountain and Bowen baker from the Estes Park and can you drive there? It looks like shuttles don’t go there. We like to climb every day. How far is it to the Grad Lake visitor area from Este’s visitor center in the park? Etc. Any information would be helpful. We have gone on line and I have about 200 page of info but need the help noted above. Should we be staying somewhere else instead of Loveland? We can cancel and re book somewhere else. We have climbed many 14K mountains and higher but like long trails.

    It will take me a couple of days to gather the information and get back to you. In the meantime, go to my website http://www.enjoyestespark.com and click on Hikes. It will give you videos, descriptions, comments and ratings on the different hikes. There are also maps of RMNP on the website.

    Bill, Loveland is about 45 minutes from Estes Park. If you go into RMNP, you need to add 15-30 minutes depending on where you are going on the east side of the park. It’s about 30+ minutes extra if you go up to Bear Lake. There is construction on this side of the park so you must take a shuttle from the Visitor’s Center up there. It could take a bit longer on the shuttle.
    You can drive to Grand Lake, the Colorado Trailhead and the Bowen/Baker Trailhead. I’d say they are 1 to 1 1/2 hours from Estes Park over Trail Ridge Road. You can look at a map and see. It takes about 1 1/2 hours to get to Grand Lake from Estes Park and that is without stopping. If you have never been on Trail Ridge Road before, plan some extra time as the stop-offs are just beautiful.
    I hope this helps.
