Road Tripping

Driving I-80 across the flatlands of Iowa and Nebraska is a rather tedious experience, at times. Lovely for it's fruitful fields of wheat, and rolling pastures complete with grazing horses and cows, the highway just seems to keep going, and going, and going. Then you enter Colorado. And you finally get that view of the Rocky Mountains. Still snow-capped in June, they are a beautiful and awe-inspiring site.

Exploring Winter Park (the ski resort), and Rocky Mountain National Park, is a wonderful adventure. The mountains of Colorado are abundant with wildflowers. They are also abundant with wildlife! It's so much fun to take two-track "roads" into forest and field. This is an adventure for all your senses.
