One day we headed out towards Monarch Pass. There is lots of great scenery along the way.
At the top of the pass, an aerial tramway takes you up to the top of the mountain.
It's an easy way to straddle the Continental Divide.
There are oodles of cell towers up there.
And beautiful 365-degree views.
On another day, we went up to Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. There are 2 large pools - one "warm" at 90 degrees and the other "hot" at 105 degrees.
You can also go down into the creek, where hot water from the springs mixes with cold water from the creek, making a perfect temperature.
After soaking, we headed over to the "Meadow" to eat a picnic lunch. There are beautiful flowers there, surrounded by a 6' high fence, so the deer can feel safe from humans as they munch on the delicious pansies.
All along the creek were old cars filled with rocks, designed to prevent erosion.
We went on to Buena Vista, were there were more deer. Here the "Loser Bachelors" were gathered outside the Town Hall. AND, there was rusty stuff!
Back home, the hummingbirds were learning to share. I have never seen that before!
