COLORADO

Jun 04,2016

Colorado is an amazing place and sits in the middle of the Southern Rockies. I can't think of a better place that I would like to be at. You can spend several lifetimes here and not see all of what Colorado has to offer. The outdoor activites here are year round. I have visited many places in the state that are just awesome. I still have a lifetime of exploring to do here before I die.

Whether you like to explore, hike, ski, fish, hunt, watch wildlife or just take a cruise up in the mountains, you will fall in love with Colorado. The majestic views are spectacular. You can hike until all of your shoes wear out and not see everything. Deciding where you want to ski or snowboard, will drive you crazy, with all of the choices you have. There are just too many adventures to list.I have met several people who don't venture out of the city. How boring is that? Colorado is not the place to be a couch potato, period! Get out and explore what this great state has to offer. With the economy in a rut, people are out gold prospecting to supplement their income, another great adventure out in the woods. Colorado is also a cyclist friendly state and has more clubs than you can count. Get out and have some fun! I hope to see you out there.
