If you are ever in the Golden State, Colorado, if there is one place you will need or must visit, it’s got to be the popular Rocky Mountains. While it is true that you can view the ranges from different states even from Canada, the highest peak, which is of course one of the mountain’s must-see sights, can only be viewed if you make the trip through Colorado. Stretching more than 2,900 miles, it is easy to see why John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High” is such a hit. John’s description of a mountain that rain’s fire in the sky and a land with forest and streams that will capture your memory are real to anyone who has ever walked in the vicinity of the Cathedral Mountains.
Since much of the mountain range is now a protected area that contains parks and is a popular tourist destination for snowboarding and skiing, you might consider taking a trip down to Colorado and experience, in your own words, what John Denver was talking about. Visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park is one way to experience what Colorado has to offer. This beautiful well-preserved wilderness in undeveloped destinations that stretches over 265,000 acres has very few roads and literally no hotels, houses, shops, motels or any commercial structures. If you love hiking and horseback trailing, Rocky Mountain tours will leave you breathless and looking forward to doing it all over again. With hundreds of miles to enjoy these activities in addition to many wilderness camping areas, get to enjoy tranquility and nature at its best. Rocky Mountain tours inside the park are especially targeted at people who wish to appreciate the mountains without the all too common tourist attractions that often accompany such attractions. With Rocky Mountain National Park, you get to have an entirely new experience.
While still enjoy the Mountains, Rocky Mountain tours also carry another side to the whole adventure experience. Enjoy fishing, lodging, hunting, white water rafting and dude ranches where families get to enjoy paradise like vacations. In dude ranches, for example, get to enjoy the abundance of activities such as horseback riding, evening hay rides and gourmet meals as you overlook either the mountains or some other sight like a river. If you want further relaxation, why not take a hot tub or sauna dip, get a massage at a spa or take a book and read as you over-look the Taylor River. Indeed, Rocky Mountain tours let you experience what the West has to offer at its best.
