    Beer

    by Astrobuck Written Mar 7, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Colorado has some very nice breweries. My favorite Colorado Beer is Pass Time. Pass Time is a Pale Ale, not very hoppy, and very smooth, medium golden in color.

    I highly recommend it should you visit here. You can find it in most liquor stores and grocery stores. It runs about $6 for a six-pack. Other Colorado beers you may find are singletrack and Avalanche, but Pass Time is by far the best in my opinion. Brewed in Boulder.

    Camping

    by Astrobuck Updated Dec 12, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When camping, especially at state parks, take advantage of what is offered, like bear food lockers (green box pictured here...check the warnings and dangers page for more information about this). There is also hiking, guided tours, or nature walks. These are very fun and educational.

    Fondest memory: I live here.

    The Continental Divide

    by grandmaR Updated May 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Continental Divide (water falling on one side will go toward the Atlantic and on the other side will go to the Pacific) runs right down the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

    We traveled through Colorado by car twice in 1964 on our way to California. The first time we were driving our 1932 Plymouth and we went across Berthoud Pass which was the lowest one. The second time we were moving from Norfolk with our children, and we crossed at Loveland Pass just west of Bakersville in the winter of 1964

    Fondest memory: My now-deceased uncle never liked the east coast of the US because he couldn't see the sky and sun (due to trees and clouds) and he hated the fogs on the west coast around SF. He said he was always able to tell where he was if he could see the mountains. And in Colorado, you always can.

    Wolfe Tattoo Company!

    by Faustinah Updated May 18, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Wolfe Tattoo is owned and operated by Lynette Wolfe, tattoo artist. It is located in Pueblo, Co. off Santa Fe and 3rd. Lynette Wolfe is an awesome artist. I've received tattoos from several artists and she is, by far, the most skilled. I'm a little biased since she is my best friend. Call for an appointment...719-583-1INK(583-1465).

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Colorado is famous for its scenery. You can either drive through the Rocky Mountains or go hiking there.
    You also want to enjoy the larger cities (Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder) and do some of the activities I will describe.

    Fondest memory: * Colorado Rockies Game

    * Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain N.P.

    * Denver & Boulder

    * Amusement parks: Six Flags, WaterWorld

    * Garden of the Gods & Cave of the Winds

    A little slice of Vegas in Colorado

    by caffeine_induced78 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The old mining towns in Colorado faced death because of declining mining revenue. In the early 1990's the voters stepped in and legalized limited gambeling in the towns of Cripple Creek (near Colorado Springs), Blackhawk, and Central City (both near Denver). Here you can play Blackjack (aka twentyone), video slots and poker. Driving through these towns I have mixed emotions because so much of the historical character has been lost. That and it was the quickest 5 dollars i've ever lost.

    Thanksgiving in the mountains

    by KaiM Updated Mar 9, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Thanksgiving 2000 (see photos). I stayed in Alma (south of Breckenridge) in a small hut with some friends. We boarded in Breck, Keystone and Loveland and also did some cross country skiing. The evenings we spent in front of a fire, with a guitar and some beer. The hut was so small. The two girls I went with got the bedroom. The bed in there originally came from an old whorehouse of the 1800´s. I slept in a closet. Well, actually it was more like a small room filled with old furnitures, dozens of skis and a small bed in the corner. This trip was awesome. For Thanksgiving dinner we were invited to other friends for a big turkey dinner. Great!!!!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There's a glacier located in the saddle between 2 hills. I think the walk we went on took is onto that glacier. We definitely got onto one, because I remember feeling that I'd never make to the top, when the top came to me! The details, though, are a little hazy with the passage of time. Hence part of the reason for creating these pages. The other part, obviously being the idea of sharing travel stories and tips.

    Favorite thing: The blond mullet (rare even in the 80's) you can glimpse belongs to Paul Osterberg, one of my travelling companions on this trip. He had the biggest calves I've seen on an ordinary human being. I'm only sorry I didn't photograph these freakish wonders to convince you.

    The Prairie of Eastern Colorado

    by Astrobuck Written Sep 7, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When you hear someone speak of Colorado, usually the first thing that comes to mind is Skiing, Mountains, etc.

    Not many people realize that Colorado actually has a boring prairie. Don't get me wrong, it is a lot more colorful than the Kansas prairie, but it is still a little bit boring.

    This is CO-94 going west towards Kansas. There is a SEVERE thunderstorm off in the distance. Read about it in my Warnings/Danger tips.

    Scenic Driving along beautiful US-24

    by Astrobuck Updated Jan 15, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If you plan on spending much time in Colorado, take US-24 from Colorado Springs to Leadville. I promise you will find some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable; as well as a few nice small towns like Woodland Park, Divide, and Lake George.

    The Colorado Trail

    by goingsolo Written Mar 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Stretching from Denver to Durango, The Colorado Trail fulfills the dreams one would expect of a high mountain educational and recreational hiking trail which connects 500 miles of Colorado's magnificent mountainsides. It is high and mighty and it is diverse, therefore demanding, because of its tremendous changes in elevation and the expanse of area it covers. It crosses eight mountain ranges, seven national forests, six wilderness areas and five river systems. The trail winds from wild, rugged terrain to serene and pristine settings. The Colorado Trail meanders through some of the most beautiful terrain in the state.

    Land of natural wonders

    by goingsolo Written Mar 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: West of the rockies lies the Colorado plateau, through which flow a number of Colorado rivers on their way to the Pacific. Before they leave the state, the Colorado, Green, Yampa and Dolores rivers plunge precipitously through giant canyons. Water erosion has carved spectacular formations all over western colorado, and the scenery is both breathtaking and infinite. East of the Rockies are high, semi-arid plains that appear to be quite flat, but in many cases are clearly the opposite. Broad escarpments, high buttes, deep river canyons and ubitiquous spring wildflowers make this part of the state a joy to visit.
