  1. Having lived in Colorado for 17 years, before moving to AZ, I can attest there are some amazing experiences to be had in CO. So many people think of it only as a ski and snowboard mecca. Truth is, there’s much more after the snow has melted. Fall hikes and drives were among my favorite activities.
