It was a week of contrasting adventures. We had just returned from a winter camping trip in Colorado and were now surrounded by a million people on a city street. While we were cold on our camping trip, being corralled outside for 9 hours in this location was beyond what we could handle. Fortunately, the kindness of three police officers saved our adventure and turned it into one of the most magical we’ve experienced.
Doug says: The Colorado State Forest Headquarters and Moose Visitor Center at Gould, Colorado. I love going to the yurts up there. My Jewish men’s group is named The Dancing Moose Minyan for one of the yurts we stayed in.
That’s right Doug! The Colorado State Forest is a hidden jewel in Northern Colorado. It hosts one of the highest moose, bear and elk populations in the state. We’ve gone there for many adventures over the years and started by pulling Alex in on a sled while asleep in his car seat. Unlike Colorado’s famous 10th Mountain Division hut system where you share the huts with others, the State Forest yurts are available for one family rental and are ideal for families with younger children. The Dancing Moose Yurt is pictured below in honor of our first contest winner and the $50 REI gift card.
