Top 3 Natural Attractions In Colorado

Colorado has some of the most incredible and varied natural terrains in the world, and you’ll find that it’s a playground for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts year-round.

Black Canyon National Park

This deep shadowy canyon near Montrose got its name from its dark depths, which offer many opportunities for outdoor recreation. You can ride down the Gunnison River by kayak or raft, or do some fly fishing along the river’s edge.

If you enjoy climbing, Black Canyon is a world-renown rock climber’s haven, as the dangerous exposures and limited protection of the dark cliffs attract the most seasoned climbers to its craggy cliffs.

Garden Of The Gods

Colorado’s most-visited attraction, the Garden of the Gods offers guided walks, bird watching, nature talks, and hiking among the red rock cliffs surrounded by rolling green hills.

You can pick up a free park map and stroll through the site, enjoying spectacular views. The free nature center offers 30 dynamic exhibits, a 14-minute HD movie, a gift shop, and a cafe.

Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge

This gorgeous oasis is located 8,200 feet up in the mountains just east of Steamboat Springs, and offers an outstanding array of photographic opportunities for naturalists and wildlife photographers.

This 24,000 acres of untouched wilderness offers meandering streams, wetlands, and lush grasslands. You’ll experience the quiet calm of nature like you’ve never seen it before.

There’s never a bad time to visit Colorado. You can photograph the fields of glorious wildflower meadows in the spring, explore the emerald green forests and crystalline lakes in summer, make an autumn pilgrimage to check out the cottonwoods blazing the hillsides with their gold and red hues, or ski down powdery slopes on a crisp winter afternoon.

With America’s highest dunes, awe-inspiring red rock formations, 54 Rocky Mountain peaks, and rolling grassland plains, Colorado will keep you busy with endless vistas and outdoor adventures.
