Hi Everyone!

I am going to Colorado in a week and while I am there I wanted to experience the mountains at it's best! Does anyone know of any fun activity centers that would give a great mountain experience? I am not even sure what to do, I was thinking maybe fishing ....any ideas?

Thanks so much!

Fun activity centers w/ fishing nearby? Estes Park. You've got RMNP right there and decent fishing on the Big Thompson just below town.

Ouray. Get on one of the jeep tours. You'll experience the mountains up close and personal.

OP, I thought you were heading to Aspen? There's great fishing on the Roaring Fork River. Go to the hot springs in Glenwood Springs and take a ride up the gondola there up to Glenwood Caverns. Explore the ghost town of ******** outside of Aspen. I already recommended the Maroon Bells in a previous post to you.
