    • Vail trip in September

      Vail Jun 16, 2014 at 2:18 PM

      My company is planning a celebratory trip to Vail at the end of September and I am researching different clothing items to add our logo to and then gift to each employee. What are clothing must haves for the end of September? I was thinking of a lightweight pullover fleece or other type of pullover but wasn't sure if there is something else I should look into instead. Thank you!

    • 6 or 7-day road trip

      Colorado Jul 3, 2014 at 10:32 AM

      Hello! We are planning a sightseeing trip to Colorado in mid to late September, and wanted some advise/suggestions on a travel route and itinerary. We would love to see some fall foliage. Will these dates work for that? Some of the places we would like to visit are RMNP, Maroon Bells, Black Canyon, Ouray, Pike's Peak, and Leadville. Are there others that you would suggest? What would be the best itinerary? I just don't want to make our travel days so "full" that we are rushed to get to the next spot! Thanks so much!

      Best Hikes and things to do.

      Rocky Mountain National Park Jun 21, 2014 at 8:16 AM

      Me and my husband will be spending 2 and a half days in RMNP during August and staying near Estes Park. I have been looking at things to do and wondered if anyone could help narrow down to the best things to do in the short time we have. We love hiking and being out in nature and have found the following things:

      Drive on Trail Ridge and visit the Alpine Visitor Centre (considering this on the day we arrive from Casper)
      I have seen trails for Bear Lake, and Nymph to Emerald Lake is this all on the same trail?
      Alberta Falls Trail
      Adams Falls Trail
      Sky Pond Trail
      Chasm Lake
      Ghost Tour at Stanley Hotel

      As we will not have time to do all of these any help or advice on what to pick over another would be great, we do plan to head off early to try and beat some of the crowds at this time of year.

    • Buckskin Joe's

      by shonnaj Online Now Jul 20, 2011 at 3:09 PM

      Is Buckskin Joes still open? I was recently told it closed? I was hoping to take my children there when we come to Colorado! I went there as a child and loved it!

    • Driving to Canon City (Royal Gorge), Colorado from Durango

      by JanetLC Online Now Feb 25, 2009 at 6:04 PM

      We are getting up very early to drive from Durango to Canon City in June. We have a choice of driving 4.75 hours going east on 160 through Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek Pass,then north on 285 and east on 50. The other choice which takes 6 hours would be to go north on 550 along the San Juan Skyway to Montrose, and then going east on 50. I have heard that San Juan Skyway is a pretty drive, but we are limited on our time. We want to spend the afternoon at Royal Gorge, the evening at Seven Falls and the next two days at Colorado Springs. Is it worth taking the extra 1.25 hours to go on the Million Dollar Highway? I imagine the other way has some pretty scenery too. ?
