Colorado Bucket List

We didn’t do this until the last year 9 months we had in Alaska, and now we have been living here in Colorado for 2 years… and haven’t done a ton. Yes, we have been to Rocky Mountain National Park a lot in the first year we got here – pretty much every long weekend there was, rain, snow or shine. And we have done a few other things this year – but with sicknesses, hospitalizations and injuries, we haven’t been able to get out as much. Since I don’t know how long we will be here, I am putting a time limit of 2 years on this list. If we can accomplish/see/go/explore even 75% of this list over the next two years I will be satisfied.

  1. Camp and explore more at Colorado National Monument – we did a short overnight on our way back from Seattle in August but did not have enough time.
  2. Explore Great Sand Dunes National Park. Sand board down the side of the dune, hike up the crest and watch the sunrise, swim in the river.
  3. Explore Mesa Verde National Park
  4. Tour the U.S. Mint Factory in Denver
  5. Visit the Focus on the Family Center in Colorado Springs
  6. See a concert at Red Rocks Ampitheatre
  7. See Seven Falls
  8. Do the nighttime tour of Cave of the Winds
  9. See the Royal Gorge in Canon City
  10. Denver Museum of Nature and Science
  11. Hike to Hanging Lake
  12. Visit the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver
  13. Overnight at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park
  14. Stand on the ‘Four corners’
  15. Hike up Pikes Peak
  16. Drive up Mt. Evans
  17. Hike to Bridal Veil Falls
  18. Cross country Ski at Tennessee Pass
  19. Tour Rosemount Museum in Pueblo

Other Bucket List Goals (that may or may not happen while we are in Colorado):

  1. Spend a long weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico
  2. Hike into the Grand Canyon
  3. Camp and explore Badlands National Park in South Dakota
  4. Visit Hawaii and hike a volcano
