You must see Colorado at least once? Rocky Mountain National Park, outside of Estes Park, is a mountain oasis with breathtaking scenery and plenty of activities. Visitors to the park can explore by taking a scenic drive on the famous Trail Ridge Road or other passageways, or by foot on one of the many hiking trails. Other activities available year-round include camping, biking, water-sports, and horseback riding. There’s also plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing of the park’s plentiful populations of elk, moose, bighorn sheep, bear and mountain lion.
The Comanche National Park is a National Grasslands in southeastern Colorado. The preserve is divided into two sections and operated by separate ranger districts: one in La Junta and one in Springfield. Drawings left by ancient Native Americans that decorate the cliffs and rocks date back as many as 8,000 years. The natural grasslands beauty can be a refreshing contrast to the beauty found at mountains or beaches. Explore the area and the prehistoric drawings, or head out to the Picketwire Canyon to see dinosaur tracks! Hit the trails on foot or bicycle, or even on horseback. You can “rough it” at the local campground or head back to a hotel to put your feet up.

Just outside the towns of Grand Junction and nearby Fruita is Colorado National Monument. A scenic road snakes its way through some outstanding scenery. This is not typical mountain scenery, but a landscape of huge rock spires, cliff walls, canyons, and desert-like surroundings with small trees and scrubby bushes. Most people drive through the monument along Rim Rock Drive and stop at the lookouts that peer over the landscape below. The road is also a popular road biking area, with hearty souls peddling their way up to the lookouts. A number of day hikes access some scenic areas of the monument, most of which involve moderate elevation changes that range from approximately 300 feet to more than 1,000 feet.
