Well, we're headed to Denver in a couple of weeks with no real plans and are wanting to take in as much of the surrounding area and Rockies as we can. We have a week to look around, and we're thinking of trying to hit Boulder, Estes Park, Vail, Breckenridge, and Colorado Springs.
We're really looking to do alot of hiking while we're there and probably a horseback ride or two up in the mountains if the timing is right. So, here are some questions:
Are there some hidden gems not to be missed?
Areas that we aren't considering that you'd recommend?
Areas we are considering that you'd pass on?
Any "must-do's" in the area?
Roads to hit (I've seen the Colorado Scenic Roads map at the Colorado DOT so it looks like there's a ton)?
Hikes not to miss?
thanks for any info!
