Motorcycle Diaries: Day 1---Friday, July 12, 2013

Left Meeker under cloudy skies. Headed for Estes Park, CO to meet an old friend visiting from Saudi.
















Breakfast in Craig then hwy 40 East toward Steamboat Springs. Weather cleared.  Sun shining over Rabbit Ears pass.





Through Kremmling













Grand Lake, CO

 



















Beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park!

First Tall Peaks entering the Rocky Mountain National Park

Taking the curves!

In Rocky Mountain National Park


 Not bad pictures--taken while on the back of a moving motorcycle!













Rest Break- Gore Range in the background.





Arrived at Estes Park early afternoon. Just beat the rain. Drizzled all afternoon, but that didn't dampen our spirits. Great time catching up. Friends rented a house behind the Stanley Hotel in Estes. Nice time. Great Healthy Lasagna. Thanks, Cindy!

The Stanley Hotel - Supposedly where Stephen King was inspired to write "The Shining" and where the television show was filmed.
