Bear Lake?
Growing up just outside of St. Louis, my father would take 1 week of vacation every year to RMNP and Estes Park. I remember him getting us up way before dawn to make the long drive across Missouri and Kansas, then would get so excited when we could finally see the mountains in CO. I fell in love with CO because of him, and was able to follow my dream and move here. I feel so much peace in the mountains. My father only took slides, so I was going through them a number of years ago and found this. I had to have a prints made, which I sent to my brothers for Christmas. This photo was taken I believe at Bear Lake in 1958. I was 3 and from the looks on every else's faces, it seems I was the only one having a good time!
