Maroon Bells

This is a must see in the summer. Great hiking for everyone in the family and a view that is drop-dead gorgeous. Also a great spot for cross-country skiing in the winter!

This is a historic bar and restaurant and the former hangout of Hunter Thompson and the joint is littered with amazing pictures of both...
