Just 90 miles north of Denver is the capital of Wyoming, the charming little city of Cheyenne. 62,800 people call Cheyenne their home. While it may be small in size, it is great in the name of history.
Utah is known for its incredible National Parks. Both Arches and Canyonlands are relatively close, so I set out to explore them! Here is my road trip itinerary: where to stop along the way & recommendations for food and fun.
The Black Canyon was carved from the Gunnison River starting two million years ago. It has weathered this stone away into a canyon, up to 2,400 meters at its highest point.
If you are searching for sweeping panoramas and sharp drops into steep canyons, then this is the park for you.
I've dreamed of standing under natural stone arches and staring out into the beauty of the west, and finally, I did it.
Located an hour and twenty minutes south of Denver, in Colorado Springs, are enormous natural rock formations known as the Garden of the Gods.
Many people haven't heard of Paint Mines Interpretive Park in Calhan, Colorado. But don't mistake its secrecy for unimportance. These clay hoodoos and spires, which were once the source of Native American pottery, will take your breath away.
This hike is not for the faint of heart! I set off to find a waterfall, which I did. But what I did not expect was the rise in elevation, the switchbacks, and the seemingly never-ending trail. 13.3 miles and 3,800 calories burned later (thanks FitBit!) I felt accomplished, exhausted and ready to sleep for twelve hours.
