Today Janice and the kids drove the peak-to-peak highway--which traverses the Rockies--to the small mountain town of Nederland, Colorado. Ned, for short.
A former mining town that got taken over by hippies in the 60s, Ned is now a town that's unlike any other.
Like, there's a frozen dead guy in a Tuff Shed on the main street in town. No, really. Janice tells the tale of "grandpa" a cryogenically frozen man who is now a town symbol.
After you visit "Grandpa," take a ride on the Carosel of Happiness, a hand-carved wooden carosel in town. A labor of love that took a few decades to complete, the Carosel is truly a joyous place.
Come up to Ned with Janice and experience a little of what makes it so amazing.
