It was a beautiful day in Colorado and my friend was coming for a visit. We decided to go to Estes Park for the weekend. We talked as we drove up the mountain; he asked if that was where the hotel that Stephen King wrote about in "The Shining” was. Yes, I answered and drove on, thinking nothing more of it. What a glorious day - blue sky, beautiful scenery, a perfect way to begin our trip.
