What is where you live famous for?
#1
I live in Estes Park CO. It's a "summer" Colorado mountain tourist town. Most tourist towns in Colorado are winter sports resorts, and we get less snow (usually) on this side of the mountains.

We're the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, which is the 3-4 most visited national park in the US and known for the Park. We're also known for the Stanley Hotel which is where Steven King wrote The Shining.

But more than anything else, we're known for the elk that visit town. Just a few miles away is the largest concentration of elk on Earth and they visit town often and are our major tourist attraction. Mostly people from Denver/Boulder, but also from all over the World come here to see the elk.

BTW The Stanley was also used in the movie Dumb and Dumber. It was created as a resort for FO Stanley who created the Stanely Steamer steam powered car. Stanley once picked up Teddy Roosevelt in Denver and drove him to the hotel in Estes to go hunting.

Get and spend Cow Chips just for being a Pheeds Phorum member...
(Never let anyone tell you that you shouldn't spend them all in one place.)
