Denver is the perfect place for exploring Colorado’s North West. If you have a few extra days to spend in the Denver area, you can easily take a few beautiful day trips for exploring the gorgeous mountains surrounding Colorado’s capital. Come along with me as we take six beautiful day trips from Denver, Colorado.
The state of Colorado is known for its many hiking and outdoor attractions. Colorado Springs in particular is surrounded by beautiful natural attractions in addition to a few man made ones. Come along with me as we explore my favorite day trips from Colorado Springs.
My good friend Jason visited Pagosa Springs, Colorado earlier this year. He took his family on a nature trip and he was very kind to allow me to post some of his great pictures on my site. I have not visited Pagosa Springs, but based on the pictures it looks like a great place to visit with your family…well if you live nearby. There is a small zoo that features a bear, a wolf, a mountain lion and other animals…caged of course. You can take a small steam train that will give you great views of the valley and forest. Well, take a look at the pictures and see for yourself. See more pictures
