WorldMark Owners Hike through Rocky Mountain National Park
April 2012

Last fall, Rose and Joe Guyther traveled to Colorado to stay at WorldMark Estes Park, a beautiful resort near the Rocky Mountain National Park. Estes Park, Colorado may be a small town, but it has a lot to love. The beautiful views are an inspiration to all. "I saw Estes Park featured in the September 2011 of Destinations magazine and I just wanted to share my experience - it is such a great area to visit and there is so much beauty and things to do."

"Estes Park is a beautiful area, right outside the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. We were there in August 2011 and had gorgeous weather. Almost every day we woke up to blue skies and as the day progressed, puffy white clouds would dot the sky. We toured the Park by car and took several hikes in the Park, including Gem Lake, Nymph Lake, Dream Lake, and Emerald Lake. We got caught in a thunderstorm and rain shower before we reached Emerald Lake, but we were prepared with our rain gear and trudged on.

We saw elk up close twice and witnessed a mountain rescue superbly done by the Park Service. My husband and brother-in-law left the WorldMark accommodations to stay amongst the boulders at Boulder Field campground for a night and finished the climb to Longs Peak the following day, a difficult climb to 14,259 feet, but a rewarding 2-day adventure for them.

For those interested in shopping, downtown Estes Park is dotted with numerous small shops that have items of many kinds - hiking gear, pottery, art, jewelry, souvenirs, food, great ice cream and candy shops, and gifts of all kinds.

The Stanley Hotel, best known for Stephen King's book, The Shining, is close by with Ghost Tours available. A beautiful hotel built by the Stanley brothers is adorned with grand staircases, large banquet rooms, and ghosts (on occasion!)."
