Photograph at The Estes Park Sign


Added by John Clairmont

It may be touristy, but that backdrop sure is beautiful!

This sign is on the mountainous decline just before you reach town. There's a small parking lot that fills up quick in peak season, but most people only spend a few minutes here on their way in to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. It is easy enough to have people take your picture, just make sure you return the favor and offer to take the next group's picture. From here, you have a great view of Mt. Olympus (to the right) as well as many mountains in RMNP (straight ahead).
