Spring is usually a step up in temperature and the need to be cautious around the streams. As the temperatures rise, the snow begins to melt. This past winter our upper elevation had snow-packs 230% above normal. These waters will be coming through the Estes Valley at very high speeds. We need to take caution of this rapid movement as well as the temperature. These waters are very cold and can cause hypothermia.
The vegetation begins to grow and the Estes Park area will pop with color! One of the first flowers we’ll see is the “Easter flower” aka Pasque flower. This little purple flower is a delight to see after the brown and white winter months.
The other great excitement is all the wildlife babies being born. The elk have started calving, birds are building their nests, foxes are having their kits, bears and bobcats are having their cubs and moose are having their calves.
Granted, the Estes Valley is not known to see moose often, but just this morning two were spotted over on the Historical MacGregor Ranch next to Black Canyon Inn in Estes Park, Colorado. Enjoy the pictures we’ve collected through the years of our local visitors.

Estes Park is open year round and is home to approximately 6,000 people, during our peak time the number of people significantly increases. There are thousands if not millions of people who come through Estes Park to get to the Rocky Mountain National Park.

Majority of those who get the day off won't be sitting around pondering the fair acts of labor laws, they'll be out on a three day break. What they may not realize is that they are helping to spur the growth of our economy.
AAA predicts an almost 10% jump in travel for this upcoming weekend. Most of those hitting the road will travel 50 miles or more from home.
The Black Canyon Inn is located in the lovely village of Estes Park, Colorado. Though we have availability on Friday and Sunday only, you may find lodging by contacting the local Estes Park CVB at http://www.visitestespark.com or by calling 1-800-443-7837.
Though many come to Estes Park for the hiking, biking, fishing and climbing-this weekend has several other options. You will find the Alpaca Market, John Denver Tribute Concert, Arts & Craft Show, the Sheriff's Posse Rodeo and even a public Stargazing Night.
If you want to stay away from the crowds, the Black Canyon Inn has some vacation rental condos available Monday-Wednesday throughout the Fabulous Fall. Call for details: 1-888-273-4395 or visit us at http://www.blackcanyoninn.com.

You don't have to have an upcoming wedding on our beautiful property-you could have been married here, dreaming of having a wedding here or just keeping up! This has been fun to create. I have added a few tabs to get creative in posting hints and ideas for our brides (and grooms).
If you have had the pleasure of saying you're I do's at the Black Canyon Inn, post some pictures to share with the world! We have a couple discussions going as well-did you have a funny moment to share? What about that oops? Did you have scissors, tape and thread to fix a rip in your pants or put a button back on? We have a Bridal Emergency Kit list as well. Feel free to add your suggestions on how to smooth out a problem.
One of the biggest questions we get is, "what will the weather be like..." I'm certainly not mother-nature nor a meteorologist, so I've added a couple links to help in your planning process. There is a 30 day forecast link as well as a sunset chart.
Estes Park, Colorado has many destination weddings throughout the year. Since many of the bride and grooms aren't familiar with the different vendor options, we have listed some of those who are familiar with our property.
