Hike: Bierstadt Lake
Trailhead: Bierstadt Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park
Distance: 2.8 miles roundtrip
Today, Ethan and I decided to head to Estes and RMNP before our puppy comes home for good. (YES! WE HAVE A LITTLE BABY BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG COMING HOME THIS MONTH). Estes was surprisingly (and not so surprisingly) busy for October. I guess we figured the tourists would be out of town by now...very wrong. Regardless, it was a wonderful day. The colors were unreal, the weather was AMAZING, the husker game -- not so much.
Either way, we had a great time passing everyone in the season pass line and drinking our way through the husker loss at The Wheel Bar.
Here's to all the days we have spent in this park and cherishing the few and far between days to come. As you know, dogs aren't allowed on the trails in RMNP so we will be here less frequently - which is okay by us because we are stoked and more than ready to see what the rest of Colorado has to offer :)
Overall, a very good day that involved hiking the park, roaming around Estes, eating gluten free pizza and staring at mountains.
