Aug 12 – Flying to Denver, CO then the drive to Estes Park, CO

Today we had to be at the airport by 7:45, where we had a 4 hour nonstop flight to Denver, CO.  Once in Denver, we used the local bus system, which has a really cool integration with Google Maps (click).  So, using the Google Maps app on my iPhone, we were able to figure out our bus route, and purchase tickets at the counter before leaving the airport.  We took the bus to the rental car agency, then grabbed lunch.

After lunch, we took the scenic byway to Estes Park, Co. and checked into our hotel.  We were both exhausted, but  decided to go ahead and register for our week pass at Rocky Mountain National Park, and took a drive up to the higher areas of the mountain hoping to find elk.  Much to our surprise, we found several.
