    • Colorado trip in early may

      Colorado Mar 9, 2015 at 4:51 PM

      My boyfriend and I will be traveling out to Denver for a concert on May 11th. We will most likely be flying into Denver either the night of 5/6 or late morning on 5/7 and heading home on 5/12. I know we will be staying in Denver the night of 5/11. I have never been to Colorado. We love the outdoors, wildlife,history, and hiking. We would like to possibly go rafting but I know that the timing is not ideal. We would like to see as much of the beautiful scenery out there as possible. We are not big fans of the more touristy or developed areas but can tolerate them if it is the best option for a place to stay.

      We have the option of staying in a free condo in Steamboat Springs but I am not sure if that is the best location for us. After doing some research it does not really look like there is as much in that area as there is in other parts of the state. I originally was looking at RMNP but was deterred because Trail ridge road will not be open yet. I have also considered doing two nights in Steamboat and two nights on the way out or back somewhere in between near Breckenridge etc. The other option that looked very nice was SW Colorado, Telluride in particular. Especially if I can return in the future to do RMNP. My concern with that is drive time with us only having a short visit. I will say that I do love scenic drives and it sounds like that one is beautiful. I thought if we did that we may want to drive straight there but then stay a night somewhere in the middle on the way back.

      As you can tell I am totally overwhelmed by all of the great sounding options that Colorado has to offer. I am also very indecisive, heh. Hopefully I will get to return to Colorado at some point in the future but if there was a chance that this would be my only trip, what would you recommend? Thank you in advance for any suggestions!

    • What to do for 3 days in Colorado?

      Denver Jan 4, 2015 at 10:32 AM

      We have decided to take a couple days and travel to Colorado. I want to see and do as much as I can in 3 days(2 full days). We are staying in Denver and considering renting a car. Should we rent a car or is there another type of transportation that will take us out of the city? Also where should we travel to? We have never experienced snow before so we want to experience winter activities. Thanks!

      I am going to Steamboat the 2nd week in January and will need to rent skis, boots, poles and helmet. I know if I want convenience I should stick to the mountain, but it's usually more expensive. Maybe not??? Would appreciate some recommendations, as well as some suggestions for restaurants. Also, which is better for transportation from Hayden airport to Steamboat- Alipine vs. Storm Mountain?

    • How should I plan short Colorado Trip

      Colorado Nov 5, 2014 at 10:18 PM

      I am based in Los Angeles. In third week of December, I will be covering some part of AZ, New Mexico (Tucson, White Sands, Santa Fe, Taos) and planning for further route. I know Trail Ridge Road will be closed irrespective of good or bad weather. Same may be true for Rocky Mountain.
      I am thinking of taking route LA-Tucson-White Sands-Santa Fe-Taos-Colorado part-back to LA after covering on-route places. I have already Zion, Bryce, Moab, Arches/Canyonlands in my past trips. I was going through beautiful places in Colorado and found so many beautiful places, I am getting confused. We will drive rental car. We are not into skiing and long hikes, but mostly interested in scenic, photographic and beautiful places. I have few more questions :-
      1- If White Sands NM is comparable to Great Sands, should I skip whole lower loop of Tucson-White Sands ? any comparison, if anybody been to both places.
      2- Which places will not be accessible, in above mentioned places ? (I hope, I was able to mention best places)
      3- I will leave Santa Fe (or Taos) on 27-Dec morning and have to reach Grand Canyon on evening of 31-Dec. How should I plan these days between both places ?
      4- There are various routes from Santa Fe to Colorado Springs (25 and other one is via Taos-84-64-160-25, other one is via Million Dollar Hwy but out of way). Which route should I take ? I would keep a plan-B route in mind, because weather can be worse on few roads.
      I am facing hard time, how should I plan my days, place to visit and stay between 27-Dec and 31-Dec.
      Please suggest.

    • Spring Break Trip

      Colorado Oct 28, 2014 at 11:10 AM

      Hey all.

      I'm a college student looking at possibly taking a trip to Colorado over spring break (end of March). I'm not a big skier but really enjoy hiking and similar activities outdoors plus I've never been to Colorado so just seeing the scenery and lifestyle of the state are draws as well. Plus the draw of cheap airfare (cheap is always a plus) and lower traffic are great.

      What I'm wondering is if this is advisable for the time of year (the cold doesn't worry me as I'm from MN and used to it)? Are the trails open and/or accessible at this time? If you would recommend it, are there any sights I should definitely try to see or treks I should make? I'm looking at coming into Denver and going from there and will be staying from Tuesday to Sunday. Thanks for your help everyone!

      Can anyone recommend some things to see on the way to Steamboat springs from Denver? I am taking a short road trip over a weekend and want to see some sights( any must sees) along the cool caves or waterfalls or picture taking opportunities. I'm not looking for any major hiking as I want to spend as much time in the Strawberry springs park as possible, soaking in the hot springs. But I was thinking of taking one way there and a different way back to view as much of Colorado as possible. Any suggesttions? Any help will be welcome. I am from Texas so I dont know the area at all. Thanks in advance.

    • Travel schedule

      Colorado Jul 28, 2014 at 12:39 PM

      I need help scheduling my vacation. We will be flying into Denver on Thurs, Oct 2 and leaving Saturday Oct 11. I want to spend the most time in Co Springs and Estes Park, but also want to have day trips to Boulder and Golden. A couple of days in Denver would be nice, but I expect most of our time will be in CS and EP because we want to do a lot of hiking and nature sight-seeing (RMNP, Garden of the Gods, etc). Since we fly in Thurs evening and fly out early Sat, those two days won't have anything planned.
      Would it make more sense to start out the week staying in CS, and hit up Golden en route to EP? Then while staying in EP take a day tour to Boulder? I'd like to try driving over to Grand Lake, as well. I'm trying to figure out how much time to allot each place, and what city to stay in if driving out for a day trip somewhere.
      Also, I understand that temps can vary widely throughout the day in October but we'd really like to do some white-water rafting. Will the waters be too cold to get any of that in?
      Thanks for any and all advice!

      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.
