Day 931: Stanley Hotel

Laetitia led a tour group through Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.  Afterwards, they visited the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park.  Stephen King and his wife stayed in room 217 there in 1974.  According to legend, he had a dream that night and the next day began writing The Shining.

Hotel Stanley, Room two seventeen
Stephen King dreamed a dream not serene
And when the day dawned
The Shining was spawned,
Book, film and now as opera seen.
