I live in Estes Park, Colorado with my daughter and husband, Peter Gaustad. And my dog, Mr. Nickle Pickle. My great-grandfather, Gov. William E. Sweet, was a founding member of the YMCA of the Rockies. Since the early 1900's, our family has been vacationing, operating stores, eating taffy, hiking, and engaging in the Estes Park community.
