Colorado Trip in October -Rocky Mountain NP Closed - Other Ideas?

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

First my heart goes out to all the people in Colorado that have been flooded. I live in Iowa and we had some awful flooding a number of years ago. The clean up is hard and long! My hopes and prayers for everyone that has been affected!

My husband has a business trip to Breckenbridge, CO in early October. I am going with him and we were going to stay in Estes Park and see Rocky Mountain National Park after his business was done. Basically we have a Thursday afternoon, Friday, and Saturday. On Saturday night , we plan to stay near the Denver airport for our flight the next morning.

People have been told to stay away from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain NP has closed. So I am looking for ideas on where to go.

We enjoy hiking, scenic drives, good food, and wildlife. We planned to stay in hotels. We have been to Mesa Verde and spent some time in Denver on previous trips.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
Sandy
