This past week took the drive up the Poudre Canyon and it was beautiful. Our usual stop on the way to the canyon is breakfast at Vern's in La Porte which is always the best. Then we went up past Cameron pass (the leaves on the aspens were brighter as you went up the pass) over towards Craig and stopped... More

Greaft paved trail around the entire city. We biked about 25 miles circling the town - right along the river for at least 1/2 of the way. We saw deer in the river just drinking. Stop at the Rocky Mountain Raptor center- it is a bird sanctuary and if you are lucky to get there at the right time(like we... More

Wife and I ran a race along the river and loved the vista. The cliffs and the river were gorgeous. The only thing we did not like was the fact that there was no oxygen.

This canyon is amazing for a drive. Colorado Highway 14 goes through the canyon from Ted's Place up over Cameron Pass on over to Walden. There are many places to stop and view the river and wildlife along the river. Great hiking trails in the Roosevelt National Park areas along the way. Also some good looking camping spots as well....

This gives you a perspective that we are not in control at all. Wind, Fire and Water can leave things changed in a very short amount of time.

Drove north on Rt 287 to Ted's Place. It's on the map but there are no signs. Apparently everybody knows where it is. You just turn left at the Shell Station. Puts you on CO14 going toward Steamboat. The first 20 miles should take your breath away. If it doesn't then you're already dead. At about 20 miles, there is... More

Th Cache La Poudre Drive is something anyone visiting the Fort Collins area should do. The drive follows the river and there are plenty of places where you can stop and enjoy the wonderful views. Plan on the drive taking some time as the roads can be a little narrow and quite curvy. There are several hikes along the way... More

Such a beautiful river with lots of stops along the way. Little hikes and fishing areas surround the river. And great river rafting and paddle boarding. The view of the foothills surrounding you is absolutely awing!
