US Highway 36 to Estes Park is set to reopen November 3. This is great news to all of us that love to head to that beautiful Colorado area. The flood hit this area extremely hard and they would love to have tourists back up visiting the area. So if you get the chance head up to the Estes Park area and enjoy the beautiful fall scenery. Not only will you be able to enjoy a very nice part of Colorado but your visit can help to revitalize the hard hit area. Just because the regular camping season is over, doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy the Colorado outdoors!

The government shutdown is having a large effect on the many National Parks throughout the country. Many are staffed with a skeleton crew or shut down all together. All of these closures and services are closed down because congress can’t seem to get its act together.
Unfortunately it’s times like this that the far off distant politics swing back around and show how they really do affect each and every one of us. Not in some abstract or far reaching impact, these government shutdowns are putting a stop to our camping trips. The inability for congress, and to a lot of extent our entire government, to get anything done is crippling our country and threatening our future and the future of this beautiful countries natural resources.
