Moved here from Florida and was amazed at how beautiful the area was, Everyday from my kitchen I look out to Mt. Sopris, an almost fourteener, and am in awe, especially in the winter.

This valley is just beautiful. My husband loves to fish and I love just being in nature. Just listening to the river and watching the wildlife is amazing. Deer, eagles, chipmunk and squirrels all over the valley. Never disappointing no matter what time of year you are here.

There is so much to love in this 45 mile stretch of heaven from Glenwood Springs to Aspen and beyond to the top of Independence Pass. Each season is special from The deep fall colors of Aspen, Cottonwoods, Maples and oak brush. Then winter wonderland takes over the mountain peaks and valley floor. Cross country skiing, best downhill skiing in... More

From Glenwood Springs to Aspen, Maroon Bells, and over Independence Pass. Lots of Aspen viewing. Late September into the first two weeks of October is the best time to go.

Quaint little tourist type town along the Crystal River. Sit by the river and eat lunch. Pack our own lunch. Very peaceful.

Whether sports person or sightseer there is plenty to see and do in the Roaring Fork Valley. The highlight is the spectacular view of Mt. Sopris in any season.

The Roaring Fork Valley has a tremendous amount of outdoor activities, cultural opportunities, and some of Colorado;s most spectacular scenery. From Glenwood Springs where the Colorado meets the Roaring Fork there are 6 very different mountain towns. From the glitz of Aspen to the funky Marble. Each town has unique restaurants and museums. The Roaring Fork is joined by the... More

The scenery here is lovely, with Mount Sopris overlooking the peaceful valley. The highway is a divided four-lane.

We had a great time walking on the trail along the Roaring Fork River. We have kids 7 and 11 and they enjoyed as well. The trail is 38 miles long and goes all the way to Aspen.
