I wrote yesterday about lodging near you. I presumed that you were farther
off the beaten path than you are. My father was born in the Big Thompson
Canyon between Loveland and Estes Park, so I sorta know the country.
I'm headed out for about a ten days. When I get back I will have decided
about coming or not in Aug.
