Today we didn't take a hike in nature! Instead we stayed in town and toured the Stanley Hotel. It's a famous old hotel, built by the guys who invented the Stanley Steamer car. A very cool old hotel. Stephen King used it as the inspiration for the Overlook hotel in The Shining, after staying here for a night at the end of the season. The tour was really fun.
We loved this fountain & sculpture on the front lawn.
Creepy pet cemetery on the grounds of the hotel.
Panorama of the view from the front terrace.
"The vortex" I think is supposed to be haunted? Or full of "positive energy"? I don't remember. This day it was full of people on my tour.
In the basement tunnel - look! "Orbs" of energy! Or else my camera was fogged up. But it could totally be a ghost.
