Get a coffee and sit and look at all those turists a while. What a scene (I was one of them last week!)

Go up to Lumpy, and hike to Gem Lake. Then go to Ed's Cantina.

+1 for a rest day activity, then sit by the Big Thompson and soak your feet with a cold one in hand.

After you get done climbing be sure to head up to the summit for sunset. Its only a 10 minute walk from the main wall. Don't forget your headlamp.
Go up trail ridge road and hike down the ute trail for 10 minutes to have a nice section of tundra to yourself... with beer in hand.

I don't have fly fishing stuff, don't drink beer, not interested in tourists, too sore to hike, saving my calories to eat chocolate, already had a pot of coffee. Today's solution: we went consignment store hopping!

Go to Moraine Park and walk/wade down the river.

?? Often means getting swept down the river. I got my shorts pulled halfway off by the current once., but I was down near the curve in the road where it is faster.

Am I the only one that thinks Ed's Cantina is crappy food and no atmosphere?

I was thinking of the flat curving sectionsin in upper Moraine Park. Also, the river is low because of the drought. However, I am inclined to be really good in rivers. I have saved two people on seperate occassions from drowning in the past.

Nevertheless, the river in Moraine Park is pretty mellow right now.

I second the motion that Ed's ain't all that. Much prefer The Rock Bar. Cheaper and way better service.
Estes has a public indoor pistol range if you like to shoot.
Or go fishing.

The Rock is more expensive, but the food is great. I like Ed's because almost everyone who works there, including the owner, is a climber. The bartender who pours your marg just got off the diamond, and that cute server just broke the speed record on the Nose. It's a climbers joint.

Option number one - Get slightly buzzed at Ed's Cantina

Option number two - Get completely fucked up at Ed's Cantina

Climber owned and operated with great food /drink / service.

I like to hit up the local rec center on rest days. Get a shower, do some swimming, sit in the hot tub. The one in Estes is pretty nice too.

I used to like ed's before they remodeled. Used to be a bunch of grungy types in there late in the day. Now it seems sterile, with few interesting patrons.

mmm. Service at the rock? Really? I like it there mucho, but the service?
Estes Brewery? If you grew up going to Hockey games and find enjoyment in shitty nachos that give you gas and beer that tastes...mmm... well like urine...then maybe the Brewery is the place for you. I hear the ladies dig your mullet, p.s!

I might be biased in my agreeing with Andy Novak, Ed's *fishtacos* and water sports!!!
I highly recommend a river float from the post office to Kind Coffee, pop into Ed's for a marg, walk back to the post office and repeat.

Sorry, what is a rest day anyway?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned chilling out on the veranda at the Stanley Hotel, great views, tourist watching, have a beer.
