I lived in Utah in the late 90s and really miss the majestic Rockies.  I would love to take a trip back West and show the beauty to my family.  Colorado is a perfect place to pass through on our way out West.  If you are looking for a great, family and budget friendly vacation to take the family on, why not check out Winter Park, Colorado!
