We stopped by the side of the road whenever there's a view so I could snap a couple of pics, but I also had snapped some pics while in the car. What I noticed when I was up there, was how quiet it is. Here is a place where I can hear myself think! It was so still, so peaceful.
We had lunch at a Mexican Restaurant at Estes Park, drove up and checked out the mountain vista, and walked around near the Hidden Valley. Some of the roads and tracks were still not opened, so there's still much to come back for, in the future. ;)
At the end of the day, we went to a teahouse in Boulder (Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse) and enjoyed some tea. It was lovely.
