    • 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.

    • True Grit Cafe

      by JanetLC Online Now Mar 28, 2009 at 8:46 PM

      After watching True Grit,I was pleased to discover that the filming for this movie was done in Ridgway,Colorado! We had considered driving this route from Durango to Canon City and now I think we definitely will.The scenery in this movie was breathtaking. I have two questions #1 Does anyone know if the True Grit Cafe is still in existence? #2 Are the mountains In Rocky Mountain National Park as magnificent as the mountains in Ridgway? I have not seen the mountains in 30 years, and I want to soak up the majesty of the mountains as much as I can. We have 6 days to spend in Colorado (one will be at Mesa Verde). We will drive the million dollar highway and possibly stop at Black Canyon of the Gunnison,Royal Gorge, Garden of the Gods, Cheyenne Mountain Park, Seven Falls and Pikes Peak. Should we drive on up to RMNP for a couple days? We wanted to get up a little closer to the mountains and do some hiking to see waterfalls, some lower peaks, etc. Do we need to go to RMNP to do this, or are the mountains in Ouray and Ridgway just as impressive?
