A stop in Estes Park

I took off in the early morning and headed toward Boulder. It was a beautiful day and I decided to cut my ride short and take in a short hike in Estes Park at the Twin Owls / Gem Lake trail head. I was not in any hurry today and on the way back home I stopped to take some pictures of the Stanley Hotel, where the movie The Shinning was filmed. It's an impressive building.
