A week later in mid October, Boulder canyon opened enabling a route to Estes Park. Wanting to support the damaged businesses and enjoy a family weekend in the mountains, we made an overnight trip.

We took a mellow family hike down the road from the Fern trailhead. The kids loved going at their own pace and exploring the rocks.
