Hi! I am the Director of Marketing & Communications for Visit Estes Park and a mom of two (slightly crazy) boys, ages 7 & 10. We are very lucky to live in Estes Park and we try to explore all Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park have to offer. I write from the heart and from a parent's perspective - understanding, of course, that parents also like to explore on their own sometimes. When I'm not at the office, you can find me hiking, snowboarding, kayaking, shopping or drinking a local IPA or sour beer. Follow my posts to learn more about me and Estes Park!  

You can find me on Twitter at @Brooke_Burnham or in Instagram at @Brooke.Burnham and you can reach me at the office via bburnham@visitestespark.com or 970-586-0500.
