Photos: Estes Park open for business after flood, trying to lure back tourists

Estes Park reopened to visitors last week after Colorado's devastating floods cut off access to one of the state's favorite tourist towns -- but the community is still trying to convince people it's safe and accessible. Given Tuesday's release of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep, sequel to The Shining, which was inspired by Estes' amazing Stanley Hotel, and this weekend's annual Elk Fest (not to mention reports of at least one business closing due to lost business), the town wants everyone to know the welcome mat is out, posting a huge gallery on its Facebook page that intersperses shots of the place looking great and locals holding up "Open" signs. See a slew of examples below.

Is there a safe route up there from Denver yet? Hwy 34 is missing in several places, and we've been told to stay away from Trail Ridge Road so that construction crews and supplies can get to Estes Park. How do we help support these businesses in our hardest hit mountain towns?

I love Estes Park. A beautiful town in a beautiful place.
