Where Stephen King sat and got the inspiration for "The Shining."
Looks kinda "wild" West.
Kinda wild west I suppose - more of the wild mountains though I think - 7500 feet elevation!
The Stanley Hotel is definitely worth a visit if you're in the Denver area. (As is Estes Park.)
I passed it on my way to Rocky Mountain NP, Conrad. Now I have to go back to have a beer at the bar.
Beautiful part of the world isn't it Norrel! The tour of the hotel is quite interesting, as it is haunted.
I'm used to ghosts, Conrad. The name of my son is Casper.
Ah, but Casper is a friendly ghost Norrel. The guys in the Stanley Hotel apparently are not so pleasant. Remember, Stephen King got his inspiration for The Shining at this very bar!
Yu still hanging around this bar<>?
Nope - too scary! Actually it is a very nice bar; great setting, very hospitable bar tenders, and they serve an excellent Manhattan, which is what my daughter was drinking in the photo.
I would like to wish you a Happy New Year too!
Looks like there is enough here to drink to everyone................
Warmest regards from Port Moody, Gabe
