Well not so much under the radar, but rather a proper noun instead of an adjective. We have spent a fair bit of time in Colorado and trekked all over this great C Location, and even picked up a few levels deeper on these Cees.
Just to hit you right in the C from the get, here is a bird’s eye view of Copper Mountain, where we skied a few times, but otherwise didn’t hang out much. Copper has that sweet C within a C within a C: Cool > Colorado > Copper, but I mean that for skiing. Otherwise, the town is pretty dull, hangs onto the interstate, and the food and lodging ain’t all that great. But the skiing is right proper.
Another go to spot that is inCredible, is Red Rocks. The vibe, the views, the artist. Plus, they only get to play for one hour past dark, which keeps concerts paced well and thick with the good stuff. Be forwarned: it is a hike to get to the place, so get in shape. I’m not kidding. And if you are sitting high up, then there’s more hike to go. I can’t remember who this photo is of. I think it was the opening band that played before Amos Lee in the summer of ’17.
Beaver Creek. This isn’t really my kind of place. It is next to Vail and a lot like Vail, except even more expensive. We have skied here a few times when friends weren’t interested in the place. We stopped here on the way back through from Moab for a drink and I grabbed this shot in early fall 2017. The aspens were turning, as you can see and the place was very Colorful.
Ladies and gentlemen, your Colorado Rockies. I’m a baseball fan, so this place works for me. And my favorite seats are the first row in right field-right center. No one in front of you. Call a home run. Great views. The Rocks aren’t typically very good and Colorado isn’t a huge baseball state nor Denver a big baseball town, but the food there is good and the vibe is chill.
Sunrises in general are pretty dope. This is from somewhere in Golden, but my wife swears it’s from the Western Slope. I mean, I can see downtown Denver right there.
And this is just a shout out to the Ellsworth at Denver Biscuit Co. Great spots for breakfasts as you can see from the gimungous biscuit. One by yourself is too much. Splitting one ain’t enough. You know the answer.
