Each day there is a selection of masterpieces of the best comedians from the silent movie era. It is wholesome fun for the entire family.
Last Monday, Roger and I attended the Rooftop Rodeo. It was so much fun. The rodeo is a warm up for many of the best professional cowboys as they prepare for Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. It was great family fun and very entertaining. The local Lions Club provided wonderful barbeque and chili hotdogs. I just love the small town atmosphere.
Yesterday, Roger and I went over Trail Ridge Road to have lunch with his sister in Grand Lake. The scenery was breathtaking. We spotted several herds of elk and deer. We also saw two of the biggest and most magnificent moose grazing by the road. What a treat.
George the local brown bear was observed and greatly photographed by visitors. He was swimming in the lake behind the Other Side Restaurant after helping himself to delicacies in their dumpster.
