Good Morning Estes Park,

Cory Meza here holding down the front desk. It’s going to be another great day in Estes Park, and with a lower chance of rain than yesterday. The high is only going to be around 70 today so remember to bring that jacket if you are going to be gaining some elevation in the park today. After my morning shift here, I’ll be off to Castle Rock, a rock spire on the edge of Spruce Lake, it’s about 5miles from the Bear Lake Trail Head, but the elevation gain is spread out so the hike is challenging but not overly so. Another recommendation I would say is Sky Pond, which sits at the base of Hallett peak.
Hiking always works up an appetite so once you’re done, come on by the Baldpate for some lunch or dinner. We always recommend reservations because the season is getting into full swing here in Estes, and you can get a reservation either online at or by calling us at 970-586-5397.
Here is what we are serving today:
Soups: White Chili- a lighter version of the classic southwestern dish
Tomato Rice- a delicious tomato soup made better with rice to soak up all the tomato
Muffins: Classic Blueberry- The Baldpate Inn’s blueberry muffins…enough said
Chocolate Mystery- Can you guess the secret ingredient to one of our signature dishes?
I got kicked out of the kitchen today before I could hear the second soup we’ll be serving tomorrow, so you know it’s going to be good. I did hear that we are going to be serving our famous Cowboy Buffalo soup tomorrow.

Have a Blessed Day in Estes Park,
Cory Meza
