More Colorado Must Do’s

Colorado
Okay, last time writing about my spring break, but there was much more to Colorado than hiking. When giving the legs a break, another memorable moment was driving into a fenced off preservation where you can spot prairie dogs, mule deer, and bison just outside of Denver. The bison get so near to your vehicles you can reach out and touch them, although I do not recommend doing so.

Another adventurous aspect of traveling is exploring the local cuisine. I did eat at some local microbreweries and even went on the Coors brewery tour. I also ate my first Rocky Mountain oyster and it was delicious. For those of you who do not know what Rocky Mountain oyster are, I’ll just say it is not seafood.

If you happen to be in the vicinity of the Manitou Incline, there is a hidden gem nearby. Known as Rainbow Falls or Graffiti Falls, this area is kept concealed under the overpass and is ornamented with colorful graffiti art. Being spring break, I figured why not strip down and walk under the falls. What I did not expect was how cold the water was, and realized the falls were flowing with the snow and ice that had just melted days before. The sheer pain prevented me from venturing into water deeper than my waist, but nevertheless it was an unforgetable experience.

I’m sure I am still forgetting a couple things, but that concludes my spring break and favorite vacation yet. It was fun and all, but it’s nice to be back in Chicago just in time to enjoy the upcoming warm weather. I’m just wish I was able to share more of the stunning photographs that were taken during the trip.
