Since our trip was relatively short for traveling so far, we didn’t do nearly as much outdoorsy activities as I would’ve liked. After all, I’m used to week long trips out west, including hikes, horseback riding, kayaking, and sightseeing. So I was beyond happy to get a quick trip to Red Rocks in, to see some of the world’s natural beauty, get a little sweat on and take some pretty pictures. My cousins were able to take us up there, which was such a help since they had been there before and could navigate the layered landscape and show us the Amphitheater and the distant city views. It also brought back some of my favorite memories with them exploring JH. Red Rocks was one of the places almost everyone told us you had to visit, it definitely was a phenomenon.
I can’t imagine going to a concert at Red Rock’s – although I hear that is an absolute must also. I would also like to go back and do either yoga or boot camp on the steps of the Amphitheater. The day we went they were having a huge fitness event with obstacle courses and more sessions of exercise classes on the steps, so were were only able to get so high up, which was a bit of a bummer since our time was cut short. Regardless, it was definitely a highlight of the trip and I loved getting outdoors, exploring and seeing new sites. And a special Happy 75th Anniversary to Red Rocks!!
TRAVEL TIP: If you’re planning a trip to Red Rocks, be sure to do some research or go with a local, there are lots of different sections of parking and entrances it’s easy to get caught up!
