Head up to Estes and drive the Peak to Peak highway from Nederland. You'll go through peaceful valley and have some awesome views and photo ops..
There's a little bar near the road into jamestown which makes decent sandwiches. Can't recall the name, but it's the only one on the left/ west side of the road. I used to stop in there when I had some projects in the hills.
Enjoy your stay.
They are forcasting snow above 8000 this weekend, so check the weather and be prepared.
