While many associate Colorado with colder weather fun, there are many different things that you can see and do in the warmer months of spring, summer, and fall. In fact, the summer and fall months are some of the most beautiful in this state, especially in the Rocky Mountains.

What Makes Colorado Unique

Then, when you least expect it, autumn arrives and the Aspen trees shimmer and shine in the Colorado sunlight and simply take your breath away. The state is home to many lakes and rivers, and you'll find the marinas and resorts on the lakes have much to offer. Visitors enjoy white-water rafting trips on the Arkansas River or kayaking and canoeing along the Snake River. The state boasts several blue-ribbon fishing waters as well. Try trout fishing by casting a fly on a guided float trip down the Colorado River or fish for several species of trout including Rainbow, Cutthroat, Brook, or Brown Trout on cold water mountain lakes and streams.

Evans Scenic Byway, state and national recreation areas along with state forests, preserves, state parks, wildlife refuges.
