Sometimes photographs aren't enough; we want to bring home more of our vacation. We look for something unique, something to add to our collection of travel mementos, or something that reminds us of a special moment from the trip. Thus, souvenirs abound at Estes Park shops. Collect mugs? Check. Collect ornaments, T-shirts? Check. Check. Browse Colorado-made items, too, for tasty foods, sweet-smelling candles, and moisturizing lotions, to name a few. Specific to Estes Park, look for elk-inspired collectibles, locally made jewelry or a piece of art that interprets an iconic landmark, such as Longs Peak or Twin Owls. And if those don't work, you can always bring home an actual piece of Estes or Colorado in the form of a rock-found at any one of the rock shops in town. The options are endless, and the memories they represent are timeless.
