Flat Stanley's picture








Day 7, Friday, December 17, 2010
We went to Estes Park, about an hour west of Longmont. You climb up and up and then suddenly there is this valley opening up below. (a) Here's me at the Stanley Steamer Antique Car Races. You can just see me over the right shoulder of the referee (picture 1). Francis and Freelan Stanley started the Stanley Motor Carriage Co. in 1897.












Day 7, Friday, December 17, 2010 (continued)
While we were in Estes, I made Ellen stop at the Stanley Hotel, which was built be Freelan Stanley in 1909. Stehen King, the horror writer, stayed here in the 1970s and got the inspiration for his book, THE SHINING (picture 2). Also, did you know that Freelan and Francis were twins and also worked for Eastman Kodak? They must be related to me. What do you think? The Stanleys I mean!
