You and your friends will enjoy the peace and serenity as you immerse yourself in the magic of the mountains. The vistas will take your breath away as we climb to the tree line.

Later we will drive over Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous highway in the country, for 360 degree views of mountains, where relics of miners and settlers cabins dot the landscape and wildflowers abound.  We will end up in the charming western town of Grand Lake, where you can dine and have fun at an authentic Colorado restaurant of your choice.
