My wife and I are rethinking our CO trip. We are considering going to Boulder and Estes Park and then dropping down to Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Can any one tell us what the weather in Estes Park and Boulder will be like in mid Oct? What are must things to see and do in both places. Estes Park is at 7,500 ft. and Boulder is at 5,500 ft. but that is really all that I do know about either place. People have told us that Estes Park is fabulous but I am worried about the weather in mid Oct. If you know of nice campgrounds that have electric hookups that help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for any help that you can give us!

The snow has started flying in the higher elevations in Colorado and this morning there is a freeze warning for the Denver metro area. October can be a bit interesting with the weather changes and transition to winter. Here is a phone number to check the road conditions in Rocky Mountain National Park up at Estes 970-586-1222. Estes Park is absolutely beautiful and the road between Estes and Boulder is a nice drive as well. Narrow and lots of curves but easy enough to drive. Here is a link to campgrounds in the area as well. I have stayed at the Estes Park Campground at Mary's Lake. Not a lot of trees in the campground, however, it's close to town the staff is very nice and the campground is clean and modern.

I live in Estes Park. Mid Oct is usually a beautiful time to visit, but it can also dump snow here. Just depends. Usually the mornings are low 30's, the afternoons low to high 50's. Check for the most accurate forecasts.

As a native of Colorado myself, the mountains are one of my favorite places in the world. But there is stuff to see in eastern CO, too. There are some really neat buttes in NE CO, and some state parks in that area. I believe one of them is by Sterling.

Traveling to Estes will take you thru the Loveland/Ft. Collins area. If I remember correctly the road to Estes goes thru the Big Thompson Canyon. The Poudre Canyon is also in the area. There used to be a café in the foothills near Poudre Canyon that had killer cinnamon rolls when I was a kid. Might still be there. Perhaps someone from the area now, knows about that one. Be sure to check out the Stanley Hotel in Estes and watch out for the Elk. They come down from the high country in the fall. The rut might still be going on while you're there. But even if it's over, still best to keep your distance. They're twice the size of the average White Tail Deer and not tame.

Images: 108 our first 3"+ snow at home this morning (7,800 ft), higher elevations got more. Already melting, but it just goes to show you how early it can snow in the Rockies. Travel safe!
