This was probably the most legit adventure we have ever had. We traveled to what felt like a very unexplored part of Colorado and drove on tons of dirt roads and camped in some desolate spots and hiked to this amazing open cave.
It was nothing short of incredible, climbing up and down rusty ladders, crawling on our hands and knees (and sometimes tummies!) getting dirty and loving every moment of it. We made it all the way down to a rushing river deep in the cave and felt like real adventurers. No guides, no real equipment besides a headlamp and our camel backs it was great.
We also hiked the infamous Hanging Lake, drove on scenic byways, and spent a day in Steamboat Springs biking around and enjoying the beautiful mountain town.
Listen for the kid at Hanging Lake that really doesn’t want to be there for 10 minutes.
