Highs & Lows
We were able to explore so many diverse natural landscapes.
We dot not have enough time to hike all of the trails we would've liked to.
From iconic red sandstone formations, to towering snow-capped mountains, to expansive sand dunes, and evergreens as far as the eye can see, Colorado's geography and natural landscapes are as diverse as they come. The vibrant, western state that is “Colorful Colorado” lives up to its namesake, and ranks pretty high on our list of aesthetically pleasing destinations in the United States. In our experience, the mix of winding roads, sprawling valleys, and steep mountain passes that you'll find here are best explored by car, so we are sharing our epic, winter Colorado road trip itinerary that is packed with hikes, hot springs, and outdoor adventures galore.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
We would have loved to spend more time exploring Rocky Mountain National Park. Only being able to fit in one hike just was not enough!
What tips would you give a friend?
Colorado is such a diverse state with regard to its nature and geography. So to make the most of your trip, do not only stay in one city; rent a car and explore as much of Colorful Colorado as you can!
Do not underestimate the importance of layers! Colorado's weather can change drastically in the span of an hour or two, so if you are planning to be out and about all day, layer up!
There is so much to see in Colorado, we highly recommend renting a car so you can road trip around the entire state.
We were surprised at the amount of mule deer that we encountered all across the state, and by how unafraid of people they were.
