Fifty years ago, America spent a year that changed the world, in what was described as a nation “out of control” during the very divisive Vietnam War, with protest and tragedy on the home front between the generations as the young revolted against their elders and authority.
During this tumultuous time in the history of our country, I was trying to learn some “self-awareness,” while living away from home for the first time. My story takes you on an adventurous journey of fun, recreation, and excitement in the Colorado Mountains, where I became a young adult while learning about life on my own.
This true story took place in A Summer in ’68, when I spent my three-month college break working as a hotel maid at the Estes Park Chalet in beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park.
At age 18, I had the opportunity to enjoy a working vacation, learning about myself with approximately fifty other college students doing the same thing. For those who couldn’t be there, come along as we go back in time to work and play in this Rocky Mountain High resort town.
