This isnít the state for lounging around by the pool, no sir, no way. Colorado vacations are all about getting outdoors and active from skiing in the morning to hiking in afternoon and dining out on locally produced food and wine. Everywhere you go in Colorado people talk about elevation. Itís an obsession. How far up did you climb, how far down did you ski, how many valleys did you cycle? That Rocky Mountain high is calling and resistance is futile.
