I could go on and on about how gorgeous the Colorado Mountains are in the summer, but the truth is that it's something you have to experience to really understand. I spoke to my husband about it often, but it wasn't till a morning hike, as he looked down towards the valley and felt a bit of awe overtake him that he really could appreciate what I meant.
What I especially love is that although it can get hot, it is never so hot or humid that you feel like you can't enjoy the outdoors. And when you are up there, there's always something to admire - like the wildlife or the aspen trees, or the gorgeous blue skies. If it's not on your bucket list yet, I hope you will consider it.
