ESTES PARK, Colo. — CMoore of Colorado has gone off the rails–I mean, trails!
This time we are at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park.
The story of the Stanley Hotel began in 1903, when the inventor of the Stanley Steam engine, Freelan Oscar Stanley, moved to the area to slow his tuberculosis diagnosis.
Sometime in 1974, horror writer Stephen King and his wife Tabitha spent one night at the Stanley Hotel when they briefly lived in Boulder. King said that inspired him for his book “The Shining.”
Following the book and movie release, the location got a haunted reputation.
