Now & Forever ABCs (Glade Falls, CO)

Glade Falls, Colorado, USA

Founded 1863

A small, 800 population town outside of Estes Park, Colorado to the north and east.

The Rocky Mountain National Park surrounds the town, and much of it is even within the park itself, and is the entire economy of the town; the populous mostly relies on tourism in the form of trail rides, camping and fishing supplies, curios and souvenirs shops, and — as with many small towns — a ‘quaint downtown’ comprised of antique stores, diners, restaurants, and similar.

For the off season, the locals keep the bills paid with riding schools, rodeos circuits, and horse breeding.

Those not engaged with horses, or tourism are largely well off professionals from surrounding cities, like Estes Park, living in the peace and tranquility of the country.
