Very beautiful - watch the locals exceeding the speed limit by 30+ mph - even in the snow - and falling rocks. If you get lucky, you will see the Big Horn sheep. VERY impressive!

take a drive up the valley to Redstone and Marble. In the winter a newly fallen snow on the red rocks makes for a great photo opportunity and Redstone a good place for lunch and a walk through a unique town. In the summer take the side road to Marble and look at the Yule mine where the marble for... More

Interesting hike with a good trailhead on Palmer Ave. Best time to see it is the couple of weeks before Halloween when the Historical Society tells the stories of how the person came to be in Glenwood and to be buried there.

I walked the trail with my dog and since it is paved you can also ride a bike or go with a baby in a stroller. The crystal clear water and the views of mount sopris are wonderful. It's not a difficult walk at all, during the summer parking at times can be an issue but worth it. Nothing more... More

After all the rains, it was wonderfully green in the foothills of the Rockies. This is a great place to visit, to hike and bike and kayak.

The mountains between Aspen and Glenwood Springs along highway 82 are breathtaking views. If you have time, continue over Independence Pass to Leadville. Gorgeous.

The path reaches between Aspen and the confluence of the Roaring Fork and Colorado rivers in Glenwood Springs. We road a 20 miles section from Glenwood Springs (then turned around). The first 10 miles give great views of the mountains on either side of the valley. Past Carbondale the path gets closer to the Roaring Fork river, and the change... More

Even if you just take a 10 mile drive east from Glenwood Springs on this highway, the canyon is amazing. The road is an engineering marvel and there is a bike path that runs along the river below. Truly beautiful!

Beautiful scenery and a nice drive to the town of Redstone. Also found natural hot springs in the river and indulged in a free soak. The town of Carbondale was a nice old west town with interesting architecture. The Pizza joint in Carbondale has great pizza.
