29 Oct A Photo Essay: Colorado in the Summer
Colorado’s towering mountains, dramatic landscapes and bustling cities make it a state filled with a variety of adventure around every corner. We were lucky enough to visit in both the winter and summer, and we aren’t sure which we prefer. Both seasons are fantastic, and both showcase a different stream of adventures and sites to see.
We went snowmobiling, ice climbing, skiing and dog sledding in the winter, and in the summer, we went white water rafting, sandboarding, mountain biking, hiking and a visit to Garden of the Gods. No visit would be complete without a bit of city exploration, as well, so we also had the chance to bounce around Denver and Colorado Springs.
I would have to say white water rafting was our favorite adventure this time around. We paddled down class III-IV rapids through Browns Canyon on the Arkansas River. Sand boarding at the Grand Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve was a close second, though! Another fun adventure was catching a bit of the Colorado Rockies game at Coors Field–Micah used to be a baseball player so we always love checking out different stadiums.
Colorado is such a beautiful state, and we still have so much left of it to explore. Until then, here are some photos from our time in the mountainous state this past summer:
