Colorado, a Spectacular State to Behold
There is nothing more spectacular than Colorado’s mountain vistas, canyonlands and natural beauty. Around every bend lies yet another amazing view, scenes of wildlife or flora unfolding.
For those who are truly on a sightseeing mission, plan your trip to explore some part of the many National and State Parks, National Forests, and BLM land that are abundant throughout this state. Most National and state parks offer guided tours. The more remote you are able to venture, the more spectacular the views and your experience with nature becomes. Although it’s tempting to want to visit many locations. Realistically, you are better off selecting an area to explore. This way you can really get to know the geology, the flora and fauna, visit notable attractions, go on a wildflower hike or consider backpacking into a region to see the wilderness. Essentially spend less time traveling and more time seeing the sights.
Traveling the state by RV is very popular
Mountain roads, passes and byways are spectacular. Reaching heights of over 10,000 feet, winding through Aspen groves, or crossing bridges over deep canyons is an ever transforming and exciting experience. However, travel by RV can be a bit nerve racking with all the challenges that mountain driving presents. Please be aware that mountain driving is not well suited for those who are not experienced with navigating mountainous roads. Your vehicle needs to be in top shape as well.
Sightsee By Rail – a great way to see the sights
We suggest that the very best way to travel into remote and spectacular mountainous regions is by narrow gauge rail. This is a wonderful way to see the sights with your entire family or group of friends while leaving the tough mountainous navigation to the train engineer. You are able to completely immerse yourself into the Rocky Mountain scenery. Allow yourself to become distracted by each new view, hold your camera with both hands and talk at the same time.
However you choose to see the sights in Colorado you need to be prepared.
- If you’re traveling by vehicle, make sure your auto is in perfect condition, especially the brakes.
- If you’re going to be hiking, make sure your shoes are comfortable and broken in before heading out.
In any case, you need to bring all weather clothing. A jacket that will protect you from wind, rain or snow. A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Daypacks for all your extra gear, food and water. Don’t forget your camera or phone so you can bring home all those spectacular sights. Be advised that cell service is limited at best in the mountains and outlets for charging are not always available. Most of all, enjoy your Colorado experience.
