Colorado is beautiful anytime of the year..
here it is, July, and snow still covers the mountain peaks..
well sort of..
with the recent high temps kissing triple digits, snow melts rapidly..
runoff fills the streams, rushing downward to the rivers and reservoirs..
many enjoy whitewater rafting, tubing and kayaking..
but the waters are treacherous..
Hiking is another pleasant sport , with abundant marked trails..
as with any outdoor activity..
be prepared with proper survival equipment..
communicate with friends and family about your entrance location..
and final destination..
time and place!
enjoy the great outdoors!
don't forget the camera!!!
