Last weekend we had an out of town visitor and wanted to make sure that she had a chance to see the mountains, so we took another trip to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain NP. I randomly googled restaurants to see what we could eat in EP that was not fudge, taffy or ice cream. I'm not opposed to fudge or ice cream, though I think salt water taffy is disgusting. So, courtesy of people I don't know, we discovered Smokin' Dave's BBQ. This is a delicious, casual restaurant that I would definitely go to again. Between the three of us we had fried pickles, a Carolina BBQ sandwich, a Texas Brisket sandwich, and my sister's sandwich, the "Man-Handler."
At RMNP we hiked Bear Lake and Alberta Falls.
And of course, no trip to Estes can be complete without some kind of dessert.
This time it was the favorite cookie sandwich at Grandma's Mountain Cookies.
And a special mention of the store Blue Skies and Dragonflies which has the greatest collection of random gifts including the Slang Flashcards.
