    Lake George is beautiful! We like to go up there for camping!

    We also like to visit Gunnison, Colorado for things like white water rafting, hiking, and kayacking! There's also good fishing!

    We live in the mountains so I love to look out my front door, lol. Here is our view.


    In terms of places to visit though we love the Silverthorne/Dillion area, Buena Vista, Bailey and Estes Park.  We love Bailey because it is where I grew up.  All the others have great camping and shopping and are just neat towns.

    For a quick study in Rocky Mountain eco-systems, you could hardly find better instruction than here. This well-settled road leap-frogs the steep divide between the South Platte and Clear Creek watersheds, passing through a succession of distinct environments. The lower elevations are green and wet, thick stands of spruce, fir, aspen, and pine rising along cascading creeks. Higher up, the streams snake through broad meadows, succoring thirsty mammals, nesting birds, and the industrious beaver, The road crests well above timberline, where every spring the grasses and flowers stubbornly renew, and the fragile tundra thaws and blossoms. This old logging and mining area flanked by Mounts Bierstadt and Evans boasts two of the state's best-preserved Victorian towns, Georgetown and Silver Plume.

    Features:
    Historic Georgetown
    Georgetown Loop Historic Mining and Railroad Park
    Local Chamber of Commerce(s):
    Clear Creek County Tourism
    Georgetown
    Grant
