Denver/Colorado Spring/Estes Park Sept 23rd - 27th

Jump to last reply

These are our tentative plans (fortunately we still have a little time make changes if needed). Best flight price was into Denver. Arrive Mon. (Sept 23rd) 11:30 AM. Pick-up rental car and drive to Colorado Springs. Staying at Rainbow Lodge. Spend Mon. & part of Tues. (Sept 24th) seeing Garden of Gods, Pike's Peak ect.... Late Tues. afternoon head to Denver to take in the Rockies/Red Sox night game at Coors Field. Staying at Best Western on Quebec St. This is the only part of our trip not up for change as we already have our tickets for the game. Wed. (Sept. 25th) head to Estes Park to visit Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. Staying at Coyote Mountain Lodge. Late Thurs. afternoon (Sept. 26th) drive to Windsor to stay overnight with family. From their house we'll head back to Denver airport Fri. afternoon (Sept 27th) for our early evening flight home.

With the recent rain & flooding in these areas we're more than a little nervous about the trip we've been planning since Feb. We aren't really into hiking (due to health concerns) but are interested in seeing as much of the areas we visit and don't mind driving, esp scenic routes.
Any information or suggestions about our trip would be appreciated.

Newport,RI
