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.

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.

We liked it so much we spent some of our vacation time looking at real estate. People are friendly and you can tell the Chambers, etc. work hard to keep the area a garden spot. Great place to base a week trip as you can drive to Aspen, Vail, etc.

This valley is what people dream of when they think Colorado. Beautiful mountains, trees, wild flowers, animals, and more. There is always something to do, not matter what time of year you visit.

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
