We chose Estes as a destination to hit up while in Colorado because some old friends of ours who live in Chicago would be out for a family reunion. Chicago and Portland aren’t exactly close, so what better time then to make something happen with both of our families being in the same place around the same time!
So in the pics below you’ll see Naomi with Roxanne (their family lived off the coast of Africa for a while), the best coffee shop in Estes (Inkwell & Brew), the happily situated golf course within a quick walk of our AirBnb condo, and some random downtown street shots.
The last time we were in town we saw lots of elk and lots of stupid tourists who thought they should be right next to the elk and even maybe petting the elk. But this time around, the elk were not present while we were.
