Going on vacation for a few weeks

Postby Scepcop » 06 Sep 2009, 16:17

Hi all,
I will be going away on vacation for a few weeks starting tomorrow. I will try to check messages here occasionally though, if I can. I will be in Arizona, Utah and Colorado mostly, so if anyone has any recommendations of things to see and do in those areas, let me know.

Thanks,
Vinstonas

Enjoy Winston. They are some of the most beauiful areas in the world.
I would highly recommend Sedona Arizona, especially if you're interested in psychics and vortexes. Arches National Monuments in Utah is a must see and if you like to gamble, but not spend a lot of money, Cripple Creak which is up the mountain from Colorado Springs is a neat little town. I could give you some "adult" recommendations for Denver, but probably not appropriate in this forum.
Have a good trip and we'll hold the fort down for you! :-)

They definitely are. I've been to Sedona and loved the beauty and colors there. But the psychic scene there was very commercialized and quite expensive too. I've always had an affinity and oneness with deserts and canyons and red rock though. Arches is awesome too. My favorite park is Canyonlands though. See these images to understand why: http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&s ... f&oq=&aqi=

Adult recommendations for Denver? You mean like strip clubs? Nah those are a rip off. Plus I'm with family anyway lol.

Which side of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado is best? It looks like there are several drives through them. I drove through the "Million Dollar Highway" a few years ago and it was spectacular and breathtaking. Is that the best part of the Rockies?

I've always been a Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes type of guy. There really isn't a bad drive anywhere from I-25 going west. If you happen to be North of Denver on I-25 though, there is a little truck stop called Johnson's Corner. Absolutely THE best breakfast in the country (Travel and Leisure said so a while back also).

I'm in a motel now in Eastern Washington, on the way to Yellowstone. Wow the internet connection here is so fast. These forum pages are loading up really fast. Whoa. I just woke up and am going to have some continent breakfast later :)

Just checking in on a few threads here first.

Here is the type of Autumn scenery I hope to catch in Colorado :)

Now I know why John Denver sang songs about that wonderful state.

BTW, we are now in Colorado at one of the towns along the 40E route. We plan to do a Rocky Mountain loop, but there are so many forks and loops to choose from. Any recommendations?
