Intro to Colorado

This page is still under construction!

We visited several areas in Colorado, all of them great: First we camped near Buena Vista. The area is a great place for hiking. Many of the 14ners are there, including Mount Princeton, which we hiked up some of the way. Afterwards we relaxed at the Princeton Hot Springs. We went riding, and visited a ghost town.

The second stop was Colorado Springs. We drove up Pikes Peak, went to the Garden of the Gods, the zoo, and the Olympic Training Center. Colorado Springs would be the place in Colorado I would actually like to live.

Last stop: the Rocky Mountain National Park. What an experience! I have never seen so many animals in my life, just everywhere. The views were incredible and we hiked a lot.
The only bad thing was the traffic in the park.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Best Mountains, most animals
  • Cons:You have to get used to the altitude
  • In a nutshell:No other place like it!

    Absolutely stunning place! I like hiking, but yes I agree with you, you need to be physically strong and fit. Beautiful tips and the place.

    Thanks Silke, for your interesting tips and pics. We russians know Colorado only owing to "western" films. Everybody knows such a beautiful song: "Oh, Colorado my Colorado! And my true servant - a carbine!"

    RMNP is a treasure, isn't it? I love Colorado...used to live there. I hate what development has done to Colorado Springs, though. All of those hideous condominiums. Arrrgh. :)
