Smooth flight. Met up with Ben at 5:30. It was too late to be able to catch the sunset anywhere good so we drove to Estes Park and found a hotel.
The sunrise was beautiful.
We headed over the pass and back down to Twin Lakes where we found a peaceful scene just off the side of the road with the mountain reflections and a little log cabin.
From there it was on to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. We did a few of the lookouts on the south rim drive and then drove to the bottom of the canyon on East Portal Rd.
We spent most of our time at the Grand View Lookout waiting for the sunset. It was perfect weather with a comfortable temperature, no humidity and no wind so it was quiet and peaceful to just sit and enjoy the splendor.
