Colorado Summer Adventure: towns, trails, and logistics

We recently returned from Colorado where we camped, hiked, biked, and explored for two weeks. We are known for squeezing in as much adventure as possible for as cheap as possible. Over the next few weeks we will be releasing articles detailing our recent adventures. Each article is aimed at helping you to experience the Colorado wilderness in a way that does not break the bank and is full of outdoor adventure.

Below is a list of articles that have been, or will be, written. Each will eventually be attached with a hyperlink that will take you to the full blog article. I hope they inspire you to make a trip to Colorado, even if you aren’t a cyclist.
