There are pastoral scenes with wildflowers and aspen trees as well as historical scenes. And there are fun drawings like the much-loved Blue Bear at the Denver Convention Center. For outdoor adventure lovers, there is mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and more! This 8.5" x 11" coloring book is fun for anyone from age 3 to 93.

Easy Hikes in the Dolomites 2017

June 21-30, 2017

The Dolomites Mountains are a dream destination! One can hike at different intensity levels in this magnificent area while enjoying breathtaking views. Our trip is designed for hikers who enjoy easier day hikes, around 6/8 miles daily with about 1,000 feet elevation gain (CMC A hikes classification).  We will use a variety of ski lifts, gondolas and chairs, to be able to hike along ridges. We will go look at glaciers from a distance, and will be close up to rock formations of incredible beauty at a time of the year in which we should also see plenty of flowers. We will hike European style, visiting many refuggios, having coffee, cappuccinos and strudels along the way.
