Where is your favorite outdoor place in the Front Range area? Do you have a favorite 14er you’ve climbed, or just a local trail or park you really enjoy?
For me, I love to drive up into the mountains during our 2-3 weeks of Fall and see all the leaves change color. Other than that, I really like hiking almost anywhere. Mueller state park is a favorite. =)

I have only lived here for 2 1/2 years, I am still awed by the entire state’s beauty. It is like living in a post card

Salida Colorado almost any time of year is my favorite without a doubt. Next weekend is FiBArk whitewater festival it should be a really fun time!

I don’t know why, as I am a real urban kind of girl, but I love Estes Park. Even in all its touristy glory I love to go up there to spend a few days. Of course, the Park is right there and you can hop over to Trail Ridge also, but I love the feeling of being in the mountains. Even fighting your way through downtown is fun. We stayed at The Stanley Hotel when my daughter got married there; what a wonderful place! The funky little golf course, renting a boat on Stanley Lake, the live concerts at Riverwalk, the Elkhorn Dude Ranch, the aerial tram for Pete’s sake! Just love that town.

FiBARK was great. Stopped by after rafting the Gorge. I’ve lived here my whole life, and still feel like I’m living in a post card — that doesn’t go away!

We just came back from Colorado National Monument (over by Grand Junction and Fruita) – love that red rock! What a great little National Park. Then we skipped up to Dinosaur National Park. That was some what disappointing as a park but unique and pretty country. We came back through the high line area (Steamboat Springs to Denver sorta). That is some pretty country but I wouldn’t want to live there in the winter! : ) There is a lot to this state with so many ecosystems that there is something for everyone! No wonder we are still one of the more popular states to move too.

I have to say Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park. Every year I get an annual pass to the park. The elk rutting season is not to be missed. We used to camp a lot (before our kids had kids of their own) up near Estes at Hermit Park and always enjoyed it.
I’ve lived in many places around the world and visited many others and still keep coming back to Colorado. It is a gorgeous state.
