Summer's End at Glen Haven.

North Fork of the Big Thompson River - Glen Haven, Colorado

It is cold .. cold .. cold .. here in Colorado today .. yesterday morning it was -6ºF (-21.11 C) .. as I type it is 5ºF (-15ºC) .. brrr ... So I went searching for something a bit warmer to post this morning .. a little haunting memory of summer.

As you head to Rocky Mountain National Park from the front range city of Loveland, Colorado you follow a very scenic highway along the base of the Big Thompson River Canyon .. The road and the river splits at a small collection of cabins named Drake. If you follow the smaller, less traveled road you will find yourself alongside a much smaller North Fork of the Big Thompson river .. It is pleasant and beautiful little road .. with numerous forest picnic grounds along the river .. it passes through another little town named Glen Haven .. and then after a short steep climb joins the main road again in the resort town of Estes Park (at the base of the National Park).
