Things to do in Colorado
We stayed at the Hilton Hotel in Denver, a baseball throw away from Coors Field, where we caught a Rockies baseball game, travelled around the city on scooters (they are all over town). Booked a Segway Scooter tour, ate Bison steak at a restaurant and went shopping in town.
Rocky Mountain National Park: Take a day trip from Denver to Rocky Mountain National Park, stopping first at National Park Gateway stables for some scenic horseback riding.
For the second part of our trip, we rented a car thru Turo and drove to Utah, stayed in a motel for the night and the next day we started our adventure with Mild to Wild great adventure 3 nights and 4 days of camping, hiking and white water rafting from Colorado to Moab Utah. An adventure you will never forget where you will view landscapes and wildlife that are truly captivating.
Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad: Then we got to the third part of our vacation, Durango, where we booked a ride on the Durango Silverton narrow gauge railroad. An operating 19th Century style steam locomotive. An amazing ride full of wonder and nature, the panoramic views, lakes, waterfalls, creeks and mountain sites are a must see.
Finally, we drove back to Denver thru the San Luis Valley on 285 North. We pulled over to admire the valley, the mountain range in on the horizon, with the sun and clouds overhead. The tranquil feeling when standing there looking across the valley is awe inspiring.
