I, Zeb the Duck, and my Alaska cousin, Eider Duck went to Estes Park, Colorado.
We love Estes Park. We wandered around town; bought the best taffy at the original Taffy Shop and then our favorite creamy fudge at Laura’s Fudge Shop. Yum!!
There is some ice on the river now.
Christmas will soon be here, and we saw these Christmas decorations.
The bear with the Christmas hat made us smile.
Things are getting so festive. We saw this snowman and snow woman.
We liked them and they liked us.
Then we drove to Rocky Mountain National Park.
The park will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2015. This park is beautiful.
We drove as far as we could on Trail Ridge Road. It is closed part way up the mountain for winter. The road is not maintained during the winter. There was snow here. The wind was pretty strong also and that makes everything feel cold. The snow was really swirling around the mountain peaks.
Near Bear Lake we got out to sit on this snow bank.
It is pretty, but snow is cold for small ducks.
This deer was watching us, just as we liked to watch her.
We watched this bird for a while;
we like seeing so many animals in the National Park. And the elk was so close to the road.
He is a gorgeous animal. His huge horns makes him so majestic. We love to see the elk here. Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are always beautiful, but they are really special in the winter with snow and the feel of Christmas in the air. We hope you are enjoying the winter and anticipating Christmas also.
