Talking 06 Estes Park Run (56k maybe)

Great Times in the Rocky Mountains!
The weather was great, the roads were great, except for the sand, couldn't have been better!
People came from all over the Colorado Front Range; from Fort Collins in the north to Pueblo in the south. We all met in Boulder and headed west into the mountians via Boulder Canyon to Nederland then turned north and shot up to Estes Park for a bite to eat. Breakfast as it turned out. We got there a little quicker then we planned.

Check it out:

Coming in from Denver on Dinosaur Ridge above Bandimere Raceway:


The gathering in Boulder. Four Foci, two Contour's and two Subaru's:


Zooming in the canyons:


A beautiful day in Estes Park Colorado:


Check out the Stanley Hotel (The Shining) above the two black SVT's on the end.

k...I will add to this too. Morning started out with crappy weather down in the Springs, but once we got up north and everyone was together the sun broke out and it was just killer.

Thanks to all for showing up and to my friend Ben for driving out to take some pics (on the way)

Here are a few I shot:

Here's two pics taken while driving. (Kids, dont try this at home)
*note: I think most of us were guilty of this one, lol.





The Line up @ Estes Park



The SVT's







more pics are up in the MidWest forum here and also in the 5280 section on FocalJet.

I've been meaning to ask, where are some good roads near Estes Park? I'll be there the first week of July for my honeymoon.
