If a day goes by and I don’t get outside to take a little walk around The Appenzell Inn, I feel like the day was wasted. If I don’t take a longer 2 or 3 mile walk at least 3 times a week, I feel sluggish and every cell in my body seems to be pulling me toward the door.
Many of our guests are like that and some to a much greater degree. We call them Hiking Nuts and not in a derogatory way but rather as a term of envy. Hiking Nuts, Fishing Nuts, Bird Watching Nuts, Wildlife Photography Nuts, Snowshoeing Nuts, Wildlife Nuts, Sunshine Nuts, and all-around Colorado Nuts are our kind of people at The Appenzell Inn.
What we find disappointing are people who ask; “What’s there to do in Estes Park?” On the other hand, that question gives us the opportunity to show people that the real world is something much better and more fulfilling than any found on a TV reality show. Your mind and body crave the outdoors and being close to nature, so stop fighting the urge and get on up to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park for a fix of fresh air and exercise.
