General Colorado advice?

by pkme

Hi all-
My family & I are hoping to visit Colorado this summer. We'll most likely fly into Denver & then rent a car. We'd like to mainly get away from the cities & enjoy the beautiful scenery. We won't be camping, but we'd like to maybe find a cabin or at least be able to find lodging in a wilderness-type area. We're more interested in the greener, cooler region, rather than the more desert-like parts. We're open to a bit of tourity stuff, but mostly we'd like to relax, do some mild to moderate hiking (husband has a bum knee), possibly some fishing & maybe even river rafting.
Any suggestions as to specifically where we should head--maybe even a suggestion for lodging? Other activities you've enjoyed in CO? Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks in advance for your comments.

The Colorado parks actually rent out cabins and yurts. So while you're technically "camping", it's a great way to stay close to nature without really roughing it. I stayed in a cabin at the Golden Gate State Park just outside Denver and it was great! The cabins were bigger than I imagined (the one we rented had 2 sets of large bunk beds, both with double beds), a table and chairs big enough for 4, a small gas stove (for heat, not cooking) and a small counter top area if you intend to use the grill outside. certainly big enough for a family of 4-5 and a short walk to the restroom facilities which were very clean. Go here to see your options as far as parks and accomodations. http://parks.state.co.us/reservations/ You'll have to bring your own sleeping bags and pillows, but it was really easy and a nice change from your typical hotel room.

rafting on the arkansas from near buena vista. and near there you could go to twin lakes and rent a cabin. it is pretty isolated but there is good hiking and probably fishing. and over the divide you reach aspen and go a little further and there is the frying pan with world renowned flyfishing.

Golden Gate State Park is a great suggestion if you want to be in nature but still relatively close to a city.
Also look at setting up along the Cache la Poudre, west of Fort Collins around the divide. If you head up above the fishing areas, it's desolate, beautiful and green. Colorado State Forest State Park has camping up there and even some moose to see (although I've never seen any).
You'll run into more crowds as you get around I-70. Unless that's what you want.

Another alternative to consider is the ski resorts where though the ski facilities are closed you should be able to get a good deal on renting a condo. Keystone sounds up your street with some excellent hiking trails around as well as fishing. For condos try this link: http://www.summitcove.com/tour/ Check out the Keystone pages here on VT.

Thanks to all of you for your replies--I have made notes, and the trip is beginning to take shape!
Thanks so much again.

While I agree that Golden Gate Canyon State Park is nice and close to the city, another place you can check out that would fit your requests is the Frasier Valley, perhaps 1.5 hours from Denver. This is where Winter park resort is, but plenty of wilderness and cabins and fishing and horseback riding and etc. In particular, Devils Thumb Ranch is a great place, although a little on the expensive side, http://devilsthumbranch.com/. In the same valley, but less expensive is the Snow Mountain Ranch, www.ymcarockies.org. Both of these places are well known XC Ski resorts during the winter.

Good luck!

Achitecture-Holy Trinity Methodist Church

by Toughluck

The Trinity Methodist Church was built in 1887 in a Gothic Revival style and designed by Robert Roeschlaub, Colorado's first licensed architect. The entire structure, including the steeple, is built of rhyolite from Castle Rock, CO, and features a stain-glass window by the Tiffany Company. DenverInfill.com See my Holy Trinity travelogue.

Byers-Evans House Museum

by OlenaKyiv


The house in contrast to other old houses of those years does not have simple rectangular shape, it is outstanding with its wings. We assumed it was build in simple way, but then went through several changes and additions. Our assumption was correct. After Evans bought the house, they began to build additions to it. As a result house had got

larger front room, dining room
a library,
and another entrance (the one which comes out to 13th street).

Overall house was built from bricks and has marvelous woodwork inside. Downstairs it has living room (or musical room), a large library, 2 parlors, dining room, and kitchen, upstairs: 5 bedrooms, 1 sitting room and a sun room.

Also in 1950 the elevator was built, that now still works (we didn't see it in work, but our guide assured us about it).

by Nobbe

Saw my first game of Baseball at Coors field. A game between the Colorado Rockies and Houston Astros. I didn't know all the rules, so it was fun to watch and learn more and more about all those rules... =)

Here: The entrance ticket for the game.

Coors Field

by ratherton

This is the home of the Colorado Rockies, apparently, they are a baseball team.

I never went to a game but the stadium looked pretty good (from the outside) and there were several bars in close proximatey which is never a bad thing.
