Gorgeous scenery is all around you at this national park west of Denver and north of ski country. Go in summer, when the park's high-altitude road is open, letting you drive between the west side where wildlife abounds and the east side, which has chains of lakes for hiking and backpacking. If you've got a 4WD vehicle with high clearance, ...

This just happens to be one of my favorite cities - and not just because I was born here. Aspen is beautiful any time of year. Some of my favorite memories are in the spring up in the mountains surrounded by wild flowers. Nothing gets better than being in a field when a sun shower surprises you and there's nothing ...

This was a beautiful park, a long beautiful drive full of places to check out the view followed by two of my favorite things, ruins and lookout towers (don't ask). We only got to see a few ruins on this trip as many are by tour only but we live just 30 miles away so we'll be back. We took ...

Epic mountain town. The steep mountain sides highlight this gem of a town. Skiing and mountain biking are intense. Hollywood and high rollers have started to find this town but it still retains the charm and character.

Durango is a great city along the Animas River. The historical downtown is full of outdoor gear for all types of sports and plenty of restaurants. Fort Lewis College blankets the city offering a small town college feel.

The town of Winter Park has a decent variety of lodging, eating , and shopping options but isn't really a destination in of itself. What makes it special is the number activities--both winter and summer--that surround it: downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, golfing, even windsurfing in a nearby reservoir. All told, it's a great destination, ...

For nature lovers, a visit to Estes Park in late summer/early fall is a terrific thrill. Although there are plenty of in-town lodging options, I opted to tent camp in the National Park itself, but came to town several times a day for meals and shopping. It's a short drive between the Park and downtown area that couldn't be more ...

US Olympic Training Center is enjoyable for those with sporting interests. Air Force Academy is an expansive installation which is great to tour especially the chapel. Garden of the Gods is so enjoyable to walk around and be inspired by nature. Colorado College is an enjoyable stop between all the other locations.

The American southwest is breathtaking--and there's so much to see between Denver and Palm Springs! I'll post specific reviews of some of the places I recommend but figured having a list of sites, in the order in which you could visit them would be helpful: 1) Aspen, CO 2) Moab, UT (Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, plus Horseshoe Canyon) ...

When I think of Denver the following comes to mind: * The great outdoors: Rocky Mountains within sight, snow sports, trails, lush forests and quaint towns. * Denver Broncos: I really want to see a football game here. * Traffic: It's as bad as Los Angeles in the city center/downtown areas. * Cool, chill, eclectic, adventurous community

Snowmass is just a hop, skip, and a jump from Aspen with great hills to ski down. It's a cute little village that you should definitely take the opportunity to visit.

I'm pretty certain Boulder is one of the best towns to live in on this planet. Everything there is just so nice, the town is clean, the people are friendly, and they've got medical marijuana. Boulder is also one of the greenest cities I've ever been to. Every place has 3 trash cans so the trash gets sorted and properly ...

SNOW KAYAKING: One again a summer sport has been converted into extreme winter fun with the potential for injury running sky high. What's needed? A paddle, wax, a kayak and helmet are all that's required other than some serious strength and the tenacity to haul all your gear up a mountain. Of course, you'll also need to bring alone a ...

Mesa Verde National Park is one of the great exhibits of America's historic heritage. Among the desert cliffs and buttes the Anasazi built amazing adobe dwellings.

Ridgway is a small town that offers few restaurants (especially budget friendly ones), and has about two gift shops for people with deep pockets. The fishing in the area is okay, but the picturesque views and scenery are ten miles south in Ouray. Ridgway is a good place to stay, but is more of a home base instead of a ...
