GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO

Biking along the Colorado River
Whitewater rafting on the Colorado River
In preparing for our month in Colorado, I came across a town called Glenwood Springs.  Sounded like there was lots to do there, so I booked a week.  Shortly thereafter, Glenwood Springs was named the most fun town in America by a Rand McNally/USA      Today survey.  And they're right!  

We rode bikes along the beautiful Colorado    River one day and went white wafer rafting on it the next.  Then we rode segways up Red  mountain.  We visited the Adventure Park and rode the alpine slide which is actually a very high speed roller coaster.  Perhaps nothing took more courage than boarding a   giant swing that sent us soaring out 1,300 feet over the valley.  One minute we were looking at sky and the next straight down at earth.  



After all the activity, we were happy to take a leisurely drive to Aspen the day before we headed off to our next adventure in Crested Butte.
