Central Colorado's Western Slope. Hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, wild life, and high altitude. Not for the timid, but a real treat for high mountains types.

We spent a few hours hiking around Hartman Rocks in the Gunnison area and would highly recommend getting out and seeing this gem!

Fantastic getaway with the teens! Lots of activities. Whitewater Rafting, fishing, hiking and best of all no phone service! Great place to hang out and unplug without the kids getting to bored!
