Frankie Valens pictured with Gerald Mayo “Mr Estes Park” and his wife Phyllis in Estes Park. We have more than just mountains in Estes Park. Frankie was a hit rock and roll singer in the late 60’s. He sang This Magic Moment, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Donna, She Cried, and many other Top 40 songs. I think it is the allure of the mountains that gets us all here, but Estes Park is so much more.
