Estes Park is a truly lovely little town, though very oriented towards the tourist. We spent a few hours wandering around the town. Gorgeous Girl was very taken with the taffy stores and made a point of looking in the display windows every time we drove through town to see what colour was being made that day.
One of the stores that we really enjoyed visiting was Mountain Blown Glass. During the day you can see glass being blown and turned into beautiful things. I’ve always been fascinated by glass blowing. I know that I am too clumsy to be trusted with molten liquid glass, so taking it up as a hobby is off the table, but I love watching masters at work. This is Dave who made a cranberry coloured Christmas ornament while we watched.

Isn’t it pretty? I admire the skill involved in this so much
