We hear this sentiment often: "The skiing brought me here, but it's the Rocky Mountain summers that have kept me here". The summers are truly wonderful and the outdoor activities seem to be endless. The mountains offer many opportunities for outdoor sports - for the novice or the expert.You can go golfing, ATV'ing, hiking, fishing, kayaking, rafting, camping, or take a nice quiet horseback ride into the mountains. Enjoy a hot air balloon ride in Ridgway. Shop the historic downtown areas of Montrose, Ridgway and Ouray and sample some of the terrific restaurant fare.
