Rocky Mountain Colorado Ute Trail

We spent a lot of time sight seeing along Trail Ridge Road going up to the Alpine Visitor Center so a separate blog post is needed for this part of trip to the Rockies. Spectacular vistas can be viewed from each of the many overlooks and from many of the trails. Most of what was once the Ute Trail is now Trail Ridge Road - the highest continuous road in the United States. My favorite hikes are the Ute trails.
