Fun Things to do in Colorado in the Winter
When planning a winter vacation for you and your family, check out all the fun things to do in Colorado. Arkansas Valley Adventure will help find the right adventure for you:
My daugher (Katie) and I did the overnight in Brown’s Canyon this past weekend and I just wanted to share my feedback. First, the guides (Amanda, Kyle and Gabe) were all helpful, polite and overall just perfect. I can’t say how much I appreciated their efforts to make the trip exciting and memorable. In particular, Amanda was very nice to my daughter, even letting her try her hand at “guiding” at the end, and I can’t say how much Katie thought that was so awesome. Again, thanks for a wonderful experience and hats off to the staff…was terrific! Second, Katie now wants to be a guide when she is in college (she’s 13 now)…so now what am I going to do!?—
