I will make the Colorado trip in August, hit the ground running in Denver and drive to Rocky Mountain National Park. I want to watch the Perseid meteor shower from Trail Ridge Road at 12,000 feet, above 50% of the earth's atmosphere. The town of Estes Park and the Appenzell Inn lie on the eastern side of the park. After RMNP, I will head back to Denver and take in its attractions: the US Mint, financial district and the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall. From there, I will drive south to Colorado Springs and go up Pike's Peak. I will explore the town of Cripple Creek, Garden of the Gods and perhaps the US Air Force Academy.
