    Spectacular views. Short hike to see and feel the power for the falls up close. Fabulous views from the upper bridge trail. Be aware this is a steep, rocky hike. Wear hiking shoes! Pretty strenuous hike up but it’s not long

    My wife and I had an amazing time with Curt. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. This is a lifetime passion for him and it shows! This was one of the best tours that we have done. Also he gave me a great deal on (Fifi’s) black alchemist hat. It is so cool! Don’t stop spreading the passion for Rx Curt!

    This was a great tour! Our tour guide, John, was informative and fun! He kept everyone interested. It was a good place to get out of the heat too! Panning for gold was also fun.

    Yankee Boy or at least to the Twin Falls Area is one of the most accessible and scenic destinations that can be found in Colorado. In June/July wildflowers are stunning there. The Twin Falls of Sneffles Crek is beautiful;. Camp Bird Road up is somewhat thrilling. I particularly like the Overhang stretcch.

    This beautiful old hospital (now museum) features numerous themed rooms on each of the 3 floors. Mining, railroads, medical practice, surgery, guns, styles, entertainment, education, dentistry, society, immigrants, law, crime, scandal, and military are some of the themes. Two rooms are dedicated to gems and minerals - one of the best collections in the USA. A must see if you appreciate top notch museums!!

    ABSOLUTELY EPIC! We did the entire trail plus down to box canon and back up to the perimeter!
    According to our data we did almost 9 miles. 5 hours. Trail can be challenging in some parts but definitely doable. We are late 50s and in decent shape. We were tired near the end. Would 100% do it again and highly recommend!!!

    The rich history of this ghost town is amazing. I could have spent all day there exploring the area but we were be doing the entire Alpine Loop. They do have two areas for bathroom stops. Bring a cooler and plan to walk uphill to see all 9 buildings. There are foundations that are remaining for the buildings that burnt down from a kitchen fire in the hotel. Be sure to study the map so you don't miss anything. I missed the jail. I will definitely go back one day. Rent a Jeep from Cliffhanger on the edge of Silverton and prepare for a 10 hour day doing the entire Alpine Loop!

    Amazing scenic byway. Got to put the jackets on when you get our of the car. Part of why area is known as America's Switzerland. A few parts make you grip the wheel a little tight but well worth it!

    They don't call it the Million Dollar Highway for the cost it is for the views. This is just one turn among many and pull off a lot and take it in Much cooler than flying through on a freeway and you will feel the road and the wind

    Beautiful views, great hot springs pools with seating around the edges of the Hot Springs pools. We visited in early October and temps were 67/40. We wished we'd brought shorts and more short sleeve shirts so pack LAYERS!! Also, if you plan to go to the pools, the best thing to bring is a sweat suit to change into when you get out or a heavy fluffy robe to wear home after the suit. We enjoyed the pools tremendously for about an hour when we went which is less than we had expected and the perfect amount of time! Don't miss the Hot Spring Pools!

    We walked here from our hotel. Although the approach was steep, the views were glorious. We found picnic tables for resting which was appreciated.

    Great experience! Lots of attention for the instruction, right size kit etc and then lots of explanation and patience with the climbing. Great facilities, lovely staff, highly recommend. Quite expensive for a guide (around 500 for a family for the morning) but it was was worth it, we will remember this for a long time. So different. Our instructor was Dawn and she was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Thank you!
