Sending out a plea to Colorado residents. Estes Park depends on tourist revenue.  Autumn in Rocky Mountain National Park, with its elk and scenery, draws thousands of people to this lovely town, and is critical to their local economy.  It is a necessary boost that gets them through the lean winter months. Between the floods and the government closure of the national parks, Estes Park has been slammed from two directions.  But the town is still open; the stores and restaurants are still open. And they sure could use our encouragement and support.  Highway 119 is open, too, so please treat yourself to the lovely drive up there, enjoy strolling through their many wonderful shops and treat yourself to a meal at one of their fine eateries.  Even if all you have is a cup of coffee, just the fact that you took time and trouble to drive up there will bring hope.

Note:  For those of you who don't live in Colorado, or the USA, Estes Park is a lovely mountain town that sits at the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park.  Severe flooding in Colorado in September closed two major highways to the town.  The remaining highway is a longer route.  The elk in the National Park and the town itself are a huge draw in the autumn, as a the beautiful leaves, so people have put up with the longer drive.  In the fall, Estes Park has a big festival called Elk Fest.  Then the government closed the parks, pretty much eliminating tourist traffic to the town.  Here are some links you might find interesting:
