the Big Thompson River. Estes Park had a population of 5,413 at the 2000
census, and an estimated population of 6,006 in 2006. The town is
named after Missouri native Joel Estes, who founded Estes Park in 1859.
town's outskirts include The Stanley
Hotel. Once a fine example of Edwardian opulence, the 1909 building
had Stephen King as a guest, inspiring him to change the locale for his
novel The Shining from an amusement park to the Stanley's fictional stand-in,
the Overlook Hotel. Estes Park was also the site of the organization of
the Credit Union National Association, an important milestone in the history
of American credit unions. Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous highway
in the United States, runs from Estes Park westward through Rocky Mountain
National Park, reaching Grand Lake over the continental divide. The town
suffered severe damage in July 1982 from flooding caused by the failure
of Lawn Lake Dam.

of 7,522 feet on the front range of the Rocky Mountains at the eastern
