2015 In-State Outing

By Sherry Richardson

An especially entertaining part of each evening was our “hike hash.” Each hiking group was given the opportunity to put a music/poetry/story-telling session together detailing their day’s trips. Many great laughs, for sure! Read more...

Featured Adventure Travel Trip

Inn-to-Inn Hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park

September 13-16, 2015

European-style inn-to-inn hiking without going to Europe!

Experience the splendor of Rocky Mountain National Park in the autumn when temperatures are cool and colors are exploding. Hike European style Inn-to-Inn on some of the best and least-traveled trails in the Park. Our days are evenly paced with 7-10 miles of hiking where we will experience lush alpine meadows, clear rushing streams, waterfalls and rocky summits.

Sound good? It gets better. At each day's end, instead of setting up a tent, eating backpacking food and sleeping on the ground, we’ll arrive at an intimate lodge or B&B to enjoy a cold drink, a hot shower, a gourmet meal and a bottle of wine. We’ll finish off our day by retiring to our rooms and climbing into a cozy bed. In the morning after a delicious hot breakfast, we’ll meet our shuttle and head to the next hiking adventure.
