July 20 in Estes Park

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.
