Expedition Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date:  1987

We drove from Estes Park into the National Park and drove the winding trail ridge road up 12,000 feet and over the mountain.  We stopped at many beautiful overlooks to admire the scenery. Driving the steep roadways and switchback in this high altitude with less oxygen was challenging. I can’t imagine pulling my travel trailer over this route. The trees, lakes and mountains were beautiful. We spotted bighorn sheep, mule deer, elk and chipmunks. We eventually drove above the timberline or tree line and Rosie posed at the summit sign (Photo#4) at 12,005 feet. It was windy and cold outside at that height. We only have a few photos of this national park but we do have a Super 8 film with lots of great footage.
