Returning to Estes Park to Work for the Summer

On May 2nd I made the final part of the drive back to Estes Park, in Colorado. I was starting work the second week of May and this job would last through the summer.

Estes Park is a very hard place for boondocking. There is practically nowhere to camp for free within a reasonable driving distance of town. The only spots I know of are pretty awful, and limited, and they get lots of kids partying till the wee hours of the morning, through the summer months.

The only reason I can stay in Estes Park for the summer is that I have a couple of friends that let me park on their property. I switch between them; one at the east end of town and one at the west end.

I’m mainly just going to share some pictures from the first two weeks of May in Estes Park in this post. To see where the shots were taken, hover over the images for details. I will be posting more in the weeks to come.

At the time of creating this post, summer has actually passed and I’m trying to get out-of-town again for the winter. As always, there are delays. Estes Park seems to have some kind of a grip on me and it always feels like it doesn’t want to let go. Something always happens to delay my departure. I planned to leave on the 5th, but maybe I’ll get out of here tomorrow. Today is October 7.
