2023 will be remembered for a while as the year that winter just didn't want to let go in here Western Colorado. We may even see some rare April snow in Mesa County before we see the real warm-up begin.

Never fear, summer will soon be here. When it comes, Coloradans all over the state will seek to make the most of each weekend by hiking 14er Mountains, whitewater rafting, and taking in a Rockies Game.

Colorado's Favorite Summer Activities

Our favorite activities in the summer months in Colorado are all the things we get to do with our friends and family. Summer is the time for climbing Handies Peak and fishing Grand Lake. It's the time for hiking the Colorado National Monument, and camping on the Grand Mesa. While all of these activities can be a fun solo experience, it's way more fun to take your whole crew with you.

Summertime To-Do's in Colorado

My summer bucket list here in Colorado has several mountain passes left on it, along with a bunch of scenic byways. If my nephews visit we go to Coors Field, if my nieces visit we are probably headed to the Denver Museum of Arts and Sciences.
