A feast for the eyes
You can’t have Colorado without color. The entire state is as if a master painter dropped his pallet and the colors arranged themselves in beautiful relief across the ground. It has blues deeper than the ocean and brighter than the most vibrant glacier. At night the sunsets burn pink and orange across the western sky while the moon hovers high above the whitened peaks of the Rocky Mountains, just starting on its nightly voyage across the inky sky. Green valleys and verdant forests greet the approach of the sun as it bathes the eastern sky in memories of the previous night’s sunset. There’s a silence in the air as if all of nature is holding its breath moments before birds begin lamenting the coming dawn and the new day before them.
There’s no deeper relaxation in all of the United States than there is in the natural glory of Colorado.
Lake Pueblo State Park is massive. With 4,600 acres of water, it’s no wonder this park is paradise for anglers. However, there’s more to do on the water than fish, like jet skiing, swimming, and sailing. If you happen to tire of the water, there are more than ten thousand acres of land for you to explore. You can hike, windsurf, play ball, or just relax under the sun. Sightseeing isn’t in short supply either. Feast your eyes on the flora that’s unique to Colorado as well as animals you rarely see elsewhere in the United States.
Lake Irwin Campground will give you a first-hand experience at what life in the Rockies is like. At a soaring altitude, you’ll experience cooler summer afternoons than you’re used to and nights chilly enough to make you glad for the bonfires. Wrap yourself in a blanket at night and enjoy the hot cocoa while you take in the natural beauty of the Ruby Mountain Range by moonlight. In the daylight you can get your workout in traversing the rough terrain or canoeing in the nearby Lake Irwin.
While the elevation isn’t nearly as high as Lake Irwin Campground, it’s still high enough for you to feel a chill in the afternoon air. Let the mountain air fill your lungs. If you wish to see more of the campground, than you can resting under the towering trees, you can take a guided horseback tour. Hunt for game and fish alike, go rafting along whitewater rapids, or go hiking if that’s more your thing. There’s something for every member of your family to do here. The best part? They welcome pets.
It’s not all about boondocking in Colorado. Paradise on the River offers full hookup for RVs in a shaded area to keep your rig cool and your stay worry-free. Less than a mile away is the Rocky Mountain State Park, and you can enjoy beautiful vistas without leaving the campground. If you do decide to hit the trails at the state park, you’re in for a great surprise with animals and scenery that will leave you breathless.
